Early on there were many planning meetings for all the participants. The group was led by Tim Muth.
The packing of supplies for 1400 children which included soccer balls, coloring books, crafts and other supplies needed was a team effort lead by master packers Clare Tomaselli and Tricia Greenleaf.

Before the team left the country, there was a special blessing Mass for all the participants. Thank you Fr. Page for sending us on our way with a beautiful blessing for all of our work.
The volunteers had to leave at 1:30 a.m., but even at that early hour there was a contingent of mission supporters, parents, children and siblings all there to wish us well on our journey.
Team 1 all ready to load into the van which is preloaded with the 18 bags all packed, at 40 pounds each of supplies, and tagged for each village they will visit.
Thank you Glenda Law and Enterprise Rental Car for this awesome van and to our private chauffeurs Georges & Angie Aboutanous!
