Swaziland delivery

We have just received a great update from Swaziland on the shipment which left the US on July 4. The food is now there safe & sound! Although our KAH food will help, they are feeding 2700 children every day and do not have enough food to care for all the children at the care points.

From our local contact, Magugu in Swazliand:
Hi Larry,

Good news indeed, we have been able to see the containers delivered and offloaded in Swaziland. A big thank you to Martin for all his hard work and facilitating its really something that he does. Thank you to Larry and team for putting all this together, we have not touched the food until we get further instructins from Jumbo. I have seen and took some of the clothes and my kids and wife are not closing their mouths - they appreciate your help indeed. God bless you and forever increase you. It all went well and we are continuing to appreciate your commitment to serving this nation.

Saturday August 22, 2009

Last Saturday (8/22/09) was a productive day!

Total meals produced reached 1,525,824, which means we came close to 6.5 pallets produced (46,224). All of that food was packed by volunteers from West Chester Church of the Nazarene in the morning shift and Countryside Nazarene in the afternoon shift. Six pallets of KAH food will go the mission they support in Honduras, called Cocal Gracias.

We also made a shipment today of 7,128 meals (1 pallet) which went to ServeCity and Living Waters in Hamilton.

Remember that we are closed until Saturday September 12th.

Thank you to all our Aug 22 volunteers!

Update from last week's activities....

We are about as close to 1.5 million meals as we can get!!! Total production to date at the end of production on Saturday (8/8/09) was 1,486,728 meals. Below are pictures of some of the volunteer packers that helped prepare almost 30,000 meals last Saturday.

Our next packing event will be Sat Aug 22. Two churches, Countryside Community and West Chester Nazarene will be teaming together to pack for the mission in Honduras that Countryside supports. This is a great thing when two churches come together for the least of these. They have been working as hard as they can on fund raising. Please pray for the pack and for the funds to come in - for the children in Honduras.

Our next packing day after that will be Sat, Sept 12.

The Great American Yard Sales is scheduled for Sat, Sept 19 from 9 AM to 3 PM. Brandy Griffis is point person. The location is the building located on Rt 22:

8432 Old 3c Highway
Maineville, OH 45039

We hope to get a key and alarm code for the building so that we can begin to move items into the building in advance. PLEASE let Brandy know that you can help with many aspects of this even now at She needs some people to help coordinating now. We will need a lot of help on the event date so let Brandy know if you can do that please as well. Samples of KAH food, t-shirts for sale, baked goods sales, collecting money, etc.... This event will be one of our major and much needed fundraisers for the year. Your help is greatly appreciated. If you have items you would like to donate to be sold at the yard sale, please drop off at the "factory" Aug 22 or Sept 12.

Please pray for the food being shipped to Swaziland. We have sent 4 shipping containers of food for these kids, the good news is that the food is in Swaziland. Prayers are needed to quickly get access to the trains so the food can be delivered to the care points.

On Saturday July 25, there was a big storm in the AM that knocked the electricity out for a bit. Emergency lights came on and volunteers sat in the dark while the computer projected the training video! Paul eventually got the lights on (they take time to reset) and we were back in action! We had several groups from local churches as well as a group that came to celebrate a birthday party, together we packed 31,536 meals for starving kids around the world. Thank you to all who volunteered! We are only 43,944 meals from hitting the 1.5 million meal mark!!!
