353. MissionCast – Container Ministry – Columbia Churches

HaitiEvery week volunteers from New Horizons United Methodist Church, Missouri United Methodist Church, Community United Methodist Church and Fairvew United Methodist Church gather to sort clothes, shoes, toys, fabric, medical supplies and much more. The carefully sorted and labeled boxes are stack until there are enough to fill a shipping container. When enough items have been donated they are packed tightly in the container. They then make the long journey by truck, train and freighter to Nicaragua. When they arrive and are distributed by the Rainbow Network they not only delight the recipients but meet real human needs. The container ministry volunteers are making a real Christian difference and their witness is felt many miles away. If your congregation would like to be involved with the container ministry you can get more information by contacting Rev. Cleo Kottwitz at cdk13@socket.net or calling the Rainbow Network office at 417-889-8088.
