I got this email from church today and I wanted to share it...
thought I would update you on what we have done so far:
*89 units of Blood Sunday - two LifeBlood mobile units - totally full of
donors from 8am - 1pm … we had to turn people down because they had
to leave to get the blood back for processing
*two 53 foot 18 wheelers .. full of clothes, packed to the roof, already
taken to Mississippi
*3 vans, 2 full big trailers, and 3 trucks full of medical supplies, already
*Fed and clothed 5000 people over the last week
*Doctors and nurses every night for the last week
*I asked for a man's bike, I got 20…
*I asked for Electrician's tools, I got 3 different offers…
*I asked for a full sized bed, I got over 50 offers and the one we took
was tied to the guy's car before he came out from dinner… less than 45
min from "ask for" to "tied to your car" .. I don't think you can get that at
a furniture store ….
*I ask for some people to come help load that 53 foot trailer, 60 people
showed up, we loaded it in 30 minutes.
*I asked for help and for people to bring their pickup trucks yesterday to
move a bunch of clothes from one sorting place to another and 40
people with 20 pick-ups (all got filed with clothes) showed up, done in
20 minutes ...
*Our clothes sorters have sorted 27+ TONS of clothes (that's a real
number, I did the math 8 times because I couldn't believe it) 1800+
boxes of clothes .. all unloaded from a car, brought in sorted by size and
type, boxed up and stacked…
*We had 3 different groups come get all the stuffed toys they could
And most of all we have touched so many lives … people from Hope,
people from other churches that have come to help, people that don't
go to church anywhere that have come to help have hugged these
people, our new friends, and made them part of their lives ……. we're not
finished yet, not even close … I've got a biggie to tell you about in the
next email …..
See you at Hope …… Mack
