Last month after the Americans left the Vida 220 team, we got together with the Groff family in Belmopan. (a halfway meeting point between us and Southern Belize). We had fellowship together, stayed overnight at a missionary friend (of theirs) house, and spent next day hiking/swimming in the river before heading home.
When discussing my conundrum about receiving school books (I didn't have a way to receive them this year), the other missionary suggested we look into Harvest Aviation. We were pleasantly surprised at what they do and how quickly they processed our request, (to help us get books). They provide a monthly service of flying needed items to missionaries. This flight happens once a month from FL. They provide it for free, but accept donations (hint hint ;) )
We had less than a week to get stuff sent to "try things out". I had my parents and sister send the most pertinent things that were sitting at their houses (a small box of school books and our drivers licences).
Today was the exciting day! We drove to the Belize airport and Nathanael was able to get our two small boxes of items. We are so very grateful!
I have to say that in general with the borders being tightly shut, the feeling of living here has been a bit claustrophobic. (I do have a tendency toward those feelings anyway!) I can't get out and I can't get what we need for our school year. It was overwhelming! (and it would be the first time that we were unable to find a way to get our items. I just didn't make school decisions.
Harvest Aviation has been a light to me and provided something we really needed. (Please feel free to donate to them as a blessing to us! We want them to benefit, they ask for nothing from us!)We are so very thankful. Not to mention most of my glasses are scratched and we were finally able to get our new pairs.
What a blessing to be able to see clearly. May God bless you with clear vision today!
