I am getting a serious education…

photo(13)I am getting a serious education on just how much stuff you can get in a 20ft. shipping container! After loading 7 pallets of flip flops (3700+ pair) and 8 large boxes of additional medical supplies from Healing Hands International we STILL have 6 or 7 feet of space to fill. AMAZING!

A big thank you to Dalvin, Missy, and Elija Pirtle, and two of Dalvin’s employees for helping to get this trailer and truck load of supplies into the crate. You guys ROCK!

We have to get this trailer loaded no later than the end of August. If you have ideas, we have space. Drop me a note: leehodges45(at)gmail(dot)com or 615-390-2134.

The Flip Flop Saga Continues…

Brand new for less than 4 cents a pair

Brand new for less than 4 cents a pair

It continues to be obvious that God wanted our kids in Dono-Manga to have shoes on their feet. A lady that works for Dollar General Corporation just dropped off 300 pairs of flip flops, brand new, assorted sizes and colors. She was able to purchase the whole lot for $10.00. Yes, you read that right. That works out to be less than 4 cents a pair! And I thought that getting 3500 pair for 20 cents a pair was cheap.

God is good all the time. All the time God is good.photo(2)
