Good Morning-

This past Friday the Dreamweaver/G4G organization had a collection at the Schaumburg Boomers Baseball Game for our partners in the Dominican Republic. Over 1000 pieces (bats, balls, helmets, catchers gear, cleats, uniforms and assorted sports equipment) were collected. It was a fun night of baseball, fireworks and a G4G flash mob that entertained the crowd at the 7th inning stretch. Thank you so much for giving the youth groups in the DR so much Blessing.

Some incredible news…this week GIK history will be made. Thanks to Lowery/McDonnell Company we will have FOUR containers packed with valuable educational furniture. Over 1400 student desks and chairs, dozens of file cabinets, tables and teachers desks will be sent to the Dominican Republic, El Salvador and Costa Rica. They (L/M) will pack the containers for us in Oak Park at the Lincoln, Hatch and Mann Schools. The DR and ES containers will launch this week, while the CR container will sit in a holding pattern for a few weeks, while kitchen equipment our partners requested is procured and inserted into the load. This incredible opportunity will help dozens of Latin American Schools improve classroom conditions for years to come.

What a great way to close out the first half of this year with seven containers to four country partners. We sent seven containers all of last year. Only God can create such opportunity!
