Mark called to let us know that the container is being loaded mid-April, heading for a new country: Somaliland. Our garage was literally overflowing with boxes and bags in every corner. We could not have fit another book if we tried. We were ready to pack up the truck and send our books, toys, school supplies and clothing on to new homes, children and families!
We called our friends, Paul, Charles and brother Reid, and we began loading the truck.
Mark and Mom kept sorting and boxing while we loaded the truck.
Finally, we were done: 17,500 books and so many toys, stuffed animals, clothes and supplies!
We look forward to sharing the pictures of our items when the shipping container arrives in Somaliland, many months from now!
