Urgent Need for Ministry Items for the Philippines

 by Doug Nichols

September is our last month in the ACTION office with my team and volunteers who have been shipping items to the Philippines.  We would like to send as many boxes of ministry items to the Philippines as possible through the end of September.

The following items are needed:

Men’s tennis shoes size 8 & 9
A small rice cooker
Canned food goods
Hygiene kits for poor students ( Each kit to include the following: bar soap, wash cloth, safety pins, bandaids, Small hair comb, small pack of tissue, Travel toothbrush, Travel size toothpaste , Travel size shampoo (3oz),  
Antibiotic ointments,
Assorted candies and chocolates,
Children t-shirts (good used and new),
Flipflops, shoes,
Crayons and pencils
Working or defective small electric appliances and electronics like radios, tape, vcd, dvd players
Peanut butter, Powdered milk
Any tools for electrical, electronics and automotive training
Back Packs for children

Items can be brought to the ACTION office, 5501 232nd St SW, Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043 from 9 AM to 4 PM.  If you have any questions, contact Candi Arveson in the office 425-775-4800.

Funds are also needed to pay for shipping -- $55 for large 18” x 18” x 24” boxes.

Let me encourage you with the following, “Through Him (Jesus) then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.  And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased” (Hebrews 13:15-16, nasb).
