Even in Idaho!





We had 4 packages come here to Idaho.

Then.....

a few days later Bruce, from church, called and said "what do you want me to do with the thousand packages I picked up at the Post Office?"

He almost wasn't even exaggerating!!!!

This was the 1st big drop off.




A week later this was the 2nd big drop off.

Thank You Bruce!



This is everything unboxed.
Outfits matched with underwear and cards.
Ready to be bagged and packed.



Here are some names of people that sent their love for the wedding feast boys and girls.

White
Chenning
Lister
Funkhouser
Miller
Lawlin
Knight
Williams
Jolene
Watson
Wheeler
Fox
Pinsom
Patzer
Bradford
Mc Garry
Kendra
Kaezmarzyk
Hasselbach
Donna

Sherry
Mary
Christel
Simmons

We had many more but I threw many of the boxes away before
I thought to post names and pictures like Linny did.



We received complete outfits pre-bagged.
We received lots and lots of shirts.
We received extra ties.
We received shorts.
Lots and lots of underwear.
We received lots of extra special notes.



It was so amazing how so many of the extra ties matched the extra shirts.
It was wonderful how each extra pair of shorts found a shirt to match.


And the girls didn't get left out.

We received dresses.
We received a whole bag of little hair bands.
Then received more dresses each with a matching hairband.


THANK YOU EVERYONE!

It is an honor to be able to take these symbols of your love to Uganda.

  10. KTB we could use shorts to match with extra shirts. We do have quite a few more shirts than shorts. Our bags are close to busting at the seams. You are welcome to send them but if it is very expensive to mail this short of notice I wouldn't worry about it. We have 118 complete outfits here in Idaho. I am sure Linny has 3 times that many. I think we will be able to outfit about 500 boys. lol
