Shipment of Gifts to Indian Orphanage

A 500 Dresses box is on its way to India.

Mercy and Grace Orphanage in the Krishna District of Andhra Pradesh, India contacted us requesting dresses and shorts several months ago. After doing a little research, we found the cost to be a bit on the high side. $600-$800ish. It just wasn’t feasible. But we wanted to do something, so we asked if there were smaller items they could use.

They suggested pens, pencils, colored pencils, toothpaste and toothbrushes, which mom and I purchased and strategically placed in a flat rate USPS box for shipping. (We have no plans to make sending these types of supplies a regular thing, but felt it was necessary this time.)

Now we wait to see if it arrives safely. I know pretty much nothing about India. I don’t know how reliable their postal system is or if they will allow the box to pass through customs.

You can pray with us that it will arrive safely and be a blessing to the boys are girls who receive it!

On another India note: Mom recently met a man who travels regularly back and forth to a different part of India, and it is likely that we will at some point ship a suitcase of dresses with him. We’ll keep you posted on that one 🙂
