So maybe you have heard of God's Share Program.....
You may have even been in our North Ave Thrift Store or donated items for it....
You may know that we supply resources to Christian missionaries around the world....
But do you know what truly goes on each day behind the scenes....
Here's just a little insight...
These pictures were taken 4/8/17 so this is up to date info!!!


These shelves are filled with items that have been priced and are patiently awaiting a volunteer to stock them on the sales floor so they can find a new home...
 These are items that have been donated. They are awaiting a volunteer to free them from their boxes and bags so that they can be sorted, priced, hung etc.

 These shelves are full of items needing a price label. When these shelves are full, there is no where to place new donations coming in.... This is where most of our backlog happens in regards to the thrift store.
     
                                 There are almost always boat shipments to the Philippines in process...


 These craft supplies are waiting to be typed onto a list that will be e-mailed to the missionaries. Once the missionaries choose the supplies that they need, they will be boxed and shipped. Did you know that odds-n-ends craft supplies can be used to teach children and adults about Jesus!?
 We are always backing boxes for air shipment.....
            And for that matter ground shipment to catch a ride on a sea container...



 Here's our Project Board.... Missionaries are eagerly awaiting requested supplies....


And there is e-bay packing to do.... e-bay sales fund a lot of our shipping postage...
 and speaking of e-bay.... these are items waiting to be listed...

these items have been separated from our regular donations so they can be researched to see if they are e-bay worthy...
These are the gift bags that are waiting to be stuffed with goodies.....
The recipients of these bags.... the ladies at the Special Touch Get Away where we will take a one-day mission to give them all a Spa Day...     



 And 4 times a year we print, fold, stuff, label and stamp a missionary's newsletter...
