We Thank you for your
help during Hurricane Mitch!
The recent hurricane that ravaged Central
America was devastating to millions of people. But we are blessed to be able
to report that because of the overwhelming response we received, Friend Ships
is able to send "Spirit of Grace" with a massive amount of assistance! The
ship is sailing loaded with thousands of tons of food, clothes, water, medicine,
medical supplies and emergency supplies!
The estimated value of the supplies is $8,229,200.00! There are millions
of pounds of water, food, including rice, beans, pasta, juice, corn and canned
food, a well drilling rig, 800,000 pieces of clothing, including tens of
thousands brand new shirts and pairs of shoes. There are truckloads of lumber
and thousands of hand tools. We have equipment and supplies to set up feeding
centers in the most damaged areas.
This aid will go directly to people affected by the hurricane in the Bay
Islands and on the North (Atlantic) Coast of Honduras. We will reach into
those areas receiving the least aid. Because of your assistance, we were
able to gather this great amount of life sustaining help in just a few short
This, our combined effort with many relief organizations, hundreds of
corporations and thousands of individuals, is the largest civilian response
to this disaster, to date. Because we worked together, each doing our part,
we will literally touch hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of lives.
We want to express to you our great appreciation on behalf of the people
of Central America for your compassion, your charity, your heart and your
spirit. By sustaining Friend Ships with your prayers, your love, financial
support and all the wonderful supplies we received, you make it possible for
us to respond to emergency and disaster situations. In the weeks to come,
we will be posting follow up reports, so that you can see for yourselves
all that your tremendous generosity has produced. Thanks again for being
a part of the great effort. Please take heart in this wonderful success story!
It is a beautiful demonstration of the love of God, making all possible and
motivating men to love our neighbor who is very much in need.
Love, Don, Sondra, Ray and the entire Friend Ships crew
