Hello KGF Church family,
David and I are going back to Mexico for the month of October, leaving Sept 30 and returning Nov.1, to volunteer with Atzin. ATZIN www.atzin.org
We have been involved with Atzin for the past 10 years and this is the organization that we were with for two years before coming to Kelowna. We are so excited to be going back. Our director (Susan Smith) has asked us to bring as many used shoes and bulk vitamins as possible.
When we heard of "Soles for Souls” we made contact with Jim and Tom and now have a hockey bag full of shoes for Mexico. We had never heard about this organization until we moved here.
PattyLou Bryant (Food for Thought) introduced me to two woman at the Shoppers Medical supply store at the Capri Mall and we received two boxes of medical supplies (dressing, bandages etc). They had been looking for a mission to donate recently expired medical supplies to. Only in North America do Band-Aids expire. We are such a throwaway society.
We also have purchased school supplies such as pencils and colour pencils for the school that we run. We are also taking a used sewing machine and 6 man tent gleaned from garage sales.
Ruth & David Wiens
Please pray for Ruth & David as they travel and minister with this exciting opportunity!
