Vitamin Update

A few weeks ago we posted a developing story about A Few Vitamins.  Now we are “at liberty” to tell you more of the story.  In February, the whole lot of vitamins was shipped from Southaven, MS to Forest, VA at the offices of World Help.  The shipping was donated by a source unknown to us.  God provides again!

World Help is leading a large group of young people from Liberty University (our alma mater!) on a Spring Break mission trip to Uganda this month.  Though they aren’t coming to visit GSF, World Help committed to bring most, possibly all, of the vitamins to us since there are more than 40 young adults on this team.  Hand carrying items into Uganda is by far the best way to get things here, so the Lord provided the small army of people it takes to carry a ton of vitamins (about 40 pounds per person).

Yesterday, the students packed all of the extra luggage for the trip and it will all be weighed tomorrow to make sure they are within the airline weight restrictions.  The team flies to Uganda on Friday and we will meet them soon after they arrive on Saturday to pick up the vitamins.  Since there are literally more than we can use here at GSF, we are giving 1,000 bottles of the vitamins to the team to give to the other orphanages and ministries they are visiting in Uganda.  This was not only practical, but a way of saying “thank you” for delivering this cargo to us.

Stay tuned for the completion of the story!
