Yesterday our group from Minnesota got together at Dr. Paul's house to pack our supplies to air ship ahead of our trip. Throughout the year, we acquire dental supplies, toys, and clothes. Through generous donations we were able to acquire 10 large boxes (2' x 3' x 4.5' tall) of supplies. In the next week, Paul will arrange the shipping of the boxes which should arrive by late December or early January. This year, Paul will be able to check on their arrival because he will be in Uganda for Christmas to be with his family. We all pray they make it there safe.
We have also finalized our team for this year. With exactly half of our group returning Vets and half first-timers, we should have a good mix. This will be our Mission's 10th year and we are all looking forward to a successful mission.
