Happy New Year, and there is no better way for this Ministry to start off the New Year than packing and shipping out containers. The first container is scheduled to be shipped to Jamaica on the 31st of January. This project started with the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. We were first contacted to get price quotes for the container and we have gone from a 20′ container that was origanly supposed to go to now having enough material that we had to up it to a 40′ container. I have been involved heavily with this container in getting space to store supplies, going to stores and ordering or picking up what was ordered and with recruting the help needed for loading day which will start Monday the 28th. With everything in the warehouse for the second container that was supposed to ship before Christmas, but was delayed, we needed more space. God, in His infinite wisdom has had everything under control, as i know He always does. He showed up in a big way as we were able to get extra warehouse space for the use of our ministry forklift. Now with the second 40′ container set to start loading on the 1st of February we will be extremely busy. This container will be going to Brazil as we say goodbye to Board Member and Friend, Bill Rowley. Bill and his family will begin their missionary journey as they grow in the Ministry called Believers Bridge. Keep us in prayers as we are still gathering supplies for last minute packing for this container. Bill will be back in town for 2 weeks as he helps us prepare and load this container. We have also ended last year with the return container of Missionay Mike Mariotti and his wife as they came back from serving in the mission field in Panama. The ministry has also been contacted by another missionary for returning to the states from the mission field with another 40′ container and wishes to remain annonymous till plans are set. Praise God for the work He still does in and through this ministry as we help send and receive missionaries on His behalf. If you are not in the area to help with the loading process, but would like to be involved, your prayers and donations would greatly help. Donations are tax deductible. Checks can be sent to Missionary Resource Network 11471 W Sample Rd Suite 11, Coral Springs, FL 33065. In the memo section please put which container you would like to help us with, Jamaica, Brazil or split for both. Donations can also be made by using the Donation Button on the left side of this page. Thanks for your prayers and support, and May God Bless you and keep you, May He make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace. Always His servant, gary
I would like to start by apologizing for not updating the website as I have in the past. We are still looking for prayer support for the last container sent to Brazil for Amazon Reach. Customs is still holding onto 6 items that were in the container. Two of the items were very important to the missions base, the first was a Baby Z riding mower for the property and the others were two motors for the safety boats. The last four items are important to the missionary but were still taken for reasons unknown. Being here in the States, we have a different idea of what is considered Commercial and what is residential. Although the mower is a residential size it is being considered a commercial mower in Brazil. This past April, we shipped a container to Slovakia. We are again getting ready to ship another container for a missionary. This time it is again heading for Brazil to a ministry called Believers Bridge International. For those that feel God has not called them to go accross the ocean as a missionary but would like to be involved, prayer and financial support are a great way for you to support missions. There is great cost in shipping a container and your financial support can relieve the burden on the missionary. There are two great books called Serving as Senders and the other is The Reentry Team. Both books show the importance of missions support. If you live in the Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach area and can help package, label or load the container, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and i can fill you in on the details and timeline. Thank you for your prayer and financial support. If you have never financially supported this ministry and would like to, you can use the donation button which is securely connected to our paypal account.
Well, we did it. The container for Brazil has been loaded and will leave Monday morning. I would like to thank all those involved in the process of purchasing, delivering, boxing and wrapping all the items requested. I would also like to thank all those who have donated so many of the items we needed for this container. We now ask for your prayer support as this container sets out for its final destination. We ask that you pray specifically for everything to pass customs inspections and get delivered to both missionary’s that it was intended for. Thank you again on behalf of Joe and Missionary Resource Network, Gary
The new address for Missionary Resource Network is 11471 W. Sample Rd Suite 11, Coral Springs, FL 33065. Though the store had closed down, the ministry is still running. We are in the process of loading another container being shared by 2 missionaries in Brazil. When this one is done we will be getting supplies for the next container going to Mozambique, Africa. We appreciate your support even through these tough economic times. Thank you all for your prayers and support.
