East Tennessee residents fill semi trucks with supplies for Ukraine victims

Beyond Amazing Continues

Refugee supplies have been pouring in from all across Tennessee from our Tennessee Baptist Churches for more than a week. Today however, the storehouses of heaven opened as we received two full truck loads of supplies at God’s Warehouse. These supplies were the result of the request sent out to our TBMB churches by our state Disaster Relief Director Wes Jones a couple of weeks ago. In his request Wes asked for specific items desperately needed for the refugees fleeing Ukraine and our Tennessee Baptist churches responded in a Beyond Amazing way.

Our churches were asked to drop off supplies at 5 locations and yesterday we dispatched two trucks from God’s Warehouse.Today both trucks come back full to running over. Thanks Tennessee Baptist!!

The first truck traveled all the way to Bartlett, Tennessee (Memphis area) to Ellendale Baptist, and then headed back east to West Jackson Baptist Church and finally stopping at our Missions Mobilization Center in Mount Juliet. Below is a photo of their load. A special word of thanks to Danny Rhoton and Bill Furgerson for making this grueling almost 1,000-mile round trip run.

The second truck traveled to Oakwood Baptist in Chattanooga and picked up a full truck load. Thanks, David Helton, for making this run. Pictured with David below is Marilyn Morrow, the director over this huge project.

These supplies, along with other supplies that have been dropped off continuously at God’s Warehouse for the past two weeks, will be loaded onto 4 containers. Two containers will ship to Moldova and two will ship to Israel. Moldova’s first container will load and ship this coming Monday, May 2nd. The second Moldova container will ship on May 16th. The two containers for Israel will load and ship on May 4th and 5th.

Since the beginning of the work of God’s Warehouse Ministries we have never seen it as busy as it is now. God, however, continues to supply our every need and to Him goes all Honor, Glory and Praise!

We need lots of help to sort, inspect and pack all the supplies God has sent. Therefore, if you have an opportunity to volunteer a few hours please come and be a blessing. We are packing today and tomorrow at God’s Warehouse, 3441 W. Andrew Johnson Hwy., from 9 to 3. As Beyond Amazing Continues.
