AC Monday: Three truckloads of mission supplies depart for Liberia, Zimbabwe

Danny Howe, chair of the Missions Ministry Team, announced total supplies collected by Holston churches in the past few weeks for the annual Hands-on Mission Project.
 
"Grab on to your seats because you will be amazed," Howe said to the Holston Annual Conference on June 10 in Lake Junaluska, N.C.

All 12 of Holston districts surpassed their goals (in some cases doubled or tripled) for collecting food, health, sewing and school supplies for needy people in Africa. 

See photos of supplies being loaded on June 6. 

Howe read the following totals (below) to the crowd in Stuart Auditorium. Three tractor-trailers, loaded with supplies, waited outside the auditorium as Holston members celebrated with applause. With the blast of a horn, the trucks departed for Charleston seaport, where they will be shipped overseas to schools and missions in Liberia and Ishe Anesu Mission in Zimbabwe.
