The Blockmakers Are Here

Today the container from Fairview Heights was finally unloaded.  It has only been in the country since November 4.  The people that release containers can think of all kinds of reasons to keep containers from being released, thus accumulating a lot of demurage and fines.  I think the reasons to not release are so demurage and fines will accumulate.  We have promised every day for almost two weeks that the container for sure would be released today and when today ends, they say first thing tomorrow.  Well, today was finally the day.

The two blockmakers were on that container, meaning we will soon be building block houses.  There were lots of backpacks.  School will be starting in about six weeks and those loaded backpacks will come in handy.  There was lots and lots of things for Casa de Esperanza and for Manos Felices and the daycare in Moaloa.

It was a really good container.  Thank you Fairview Heights Church of Christ.  There was a lot of hard work that went into packing and loading the container.  Your hard work is appreciated and you will make a difference in the lives of lot of people.
