Many of you know that we have been praying for the arrival at the Operation Rescue Centre at Mekelle of a container from Northern Ireland which included items from members of the church. It was shipped out in early December and much patience has been required as the Ethiopian bureaucratic process was worked through. However we praise God for its safe arrival at the centre on 21st May and know how much joy there will be as its contents are unpacked. We also thank God for answered prayer that the land for a fourth centre at Maichew has now been assigned to the project and the planning/building process can now begin. Thank you for ongoing support.

Shipping Container to ORE
You may have heard of a container load of donated goods being shipped from Northern Ireland to Mekelle. It is true! With great assistance from generous helpers and donors we have shipped our first 20ft container to Getachew at Operation Rescue. It is full of clothing, computers, toys, blankets, kitchen equipment and much much more. Kate’s visit to ORE in October meant it was possible to liaise directly with the staff at ORE as to what equipment would be of most use to them. We are delighted to have on board a wheelchair for Sammy one of Getachew's sons. The sense of excitement and blessing all the supplies will bring is almost overwhelming for those of us who have seen just how little our ORE friends and families have.
Please pray for the transit during December of approximately 28 days and in particular for the customs clearance process in Djibouti. If you were a donor please continue to pray through your gift, that God will bless richly the recipients of this outreach.
It is our hope and prayer that if this container arrives safely, as we trust it will, we can consider sending out another container at some future time.
