I JUST GOT THIS EMAIL THIS MORNING!!! PRAISE GOD!!!
Got some great news!!!!! I truly believe your mobilization of prayer and action helped bring this to pass. We have got the food for OREA/HNAV (Oral Roberts Evangelistic Association/Hunger Needs a Voice) that will be providing the full shipping cost to ship a full 40 foot container to the Childs in Niger. So, 1x40 foot FMSC 'Feed My Starving Children' (270,864 meals) will most likely be loaded out this Thursday April 1, 2010 for Niger.
Truly, God's timing is perfect. This container came released because of a situation not allowing us to send it to another country. Thanks Chantelle for all you are doing and have done!!!!
I then got a second email from Bill...
I forgot to mention…if you can raise the funds, we could possibly send another 1x40 FMSC container to Niger to the Childs perhaps in May, June or July…perhaps. The need is great and the hours is now…what do you think?
This means ONE container is going to be shipped on April 1, not because of funds NourishNiger has raised, but just because of God's amazing provision!!!
So, the question is... can we match that? Can we continue to raise the money to send a SECOND container?! I say we should!!! Please, comment here on the blog or on the discussion board on the Facebook group with your thoughts, questions, concerns, etc.
The need is SO great there... http://www1.voanews.com/english/news/africa/People-in-Niger-Heading-Toward-Capital-in-Search-of-Food-89261457.html
Please, KEEP PRAYING! This is a HUGE answer to prayer, and God is SO good, but there are still so many needs. May God continue to bless this project, but most of all bless the people of Niger and provide for their needs.
