Mrs. Alice poison, Mr. Kofi Moulton, Ms. Delphina Swen and Mr. Bestman Larmena and others were named some of the best workers during the Friends In Jesus, the African church, first Ebola Donation Drive shipment to the affected West African region.
Sacramento, Calif -After a long and endless campaign and the unity of African and other foreign nationalities who came to together to help curb with the deadly Ebola virus in West Africa, one of California African Church, which is located in California’s capital, sacramento, known as Friends In Jesus International Church's first Ebola donation drive shipment filled with donated medical supplies, food, equipment, and drink supplies such as surgical gloves, exam gloves, infrared thermometers, isolation gowns, body bags(adults and children), Oatmeal, cornmeal, flour, sugar, canned meat, van vegetables, beans, rice and among other supplies that are heading to the affected West Africa's Ebola region such as Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and perhaps Nigeria.
The African church held an endless two Ebola Donation Drive events in which they were able to get all of the donated products (medical supplies, food, drinks, and equipment supplies) from big medical companies, medical supply hospitals, ordinary Africans and other foreign nationalities; the two Ebola Donation Drive events were successful due to huge support from all the African churches in the region and the common Africans themselves, friends, family, relatives, etc.
On Friday, November 26, 2014 which marked a historical day in the church's first big donation relief abroad (internationally), the African church gathered its members, other Africans (family, kids, women and men) in the region and foreign nationalities to help with the loading of some donated supplies into a big cargo container; the first Ebola Donation Drive cargo container shipment is set to leave California’s port for the West Africa's Ebola affected region in about a one or two days, Pastor Tim Wulah Jr, the senior pastor and founder of the church and the idealist of the Ebola Donation Drive committee, confirmed.
And as people gathered to load the first cargo container shipment full of expensive donated supplies -which begins at 10:30 am PT to 7:30 pm PT, cheers from Mrs. Bendu Hunter, one of the inventory committee and others at the loading site gave those that were loading the cargo container a victory applauded performance -and with such praises, happiness and performance, the church was able, yet again, to win its first Ebola international donation cargo container shipment.
And even though there were people who loaded the cargo container, there were other extraordinary people that really enabled the church to complete its first Ebola international shipment; they are namely, Mrs. Alice Poison, who was actually in the container and trying to speed things up; Mr. Kofi Moulton, who was the head stacker, and he was accompanied by Mr. Bestman Larmena; finally, Ms. Delphina Swen, one of the extraordinary female loaders, made sure that all supplies were handled well, and people and stuff were safe; when she (Ms. Delphina Swen) was asked what encourages her to work that hard, she replied,“I am happy to take on this role. I am part of the community, and I did it not for the price but for the people who are suffering.”
On the other hand, however, Mrs. Alice Poison the extra- extraordinary woman felt that the church has done what it was made to do -and that’s helping the innocent Ebola's victims back home, and also showing that working together comes with victory over the deadly virus -which has claimed over 5000 victims -so far in the affected West Africa's Ebola region.
The estimated arrival of the church's first cargo container shipment, which is filled with food, medical supplies, and drink supplies, is scheduled to reach in the affected West Africa's Ebola region in late January; including in the first cargo container (on the medical side) are surgical gloves, exam gloves, infrared thermometers, isolation gowns, body bags(adults and children), medical supplies, vitamins, acetaminophen and other medical supplies; (for the) Foods are oatmeal, cornmeal, flour, sugar, canned meat, canned vegetables, beans, rice, canned or powdered milk, cereal, cream of wheat or other non perishable food; (finally,) for the drinks are bottled water, canned juice, canned soda, Gatorade and other health beverages; and no cash.
Also, all the shipments including the first, second, third and perhaps the fourth will go directly to the people and not the government of the affected West Africa's Ebola region, the church committee responded to a question which was asked about “who is going to receive the shipment if it gets there [on the ground].”
Background: Church's Ebola Donation Drive Events:
While in Germany for a family visit, Pastor Tim Wulah jr, the founder and the senior pastor of the church, called a three day fast and prayer ceremony soon after his arrival back to Sacramento; but the church decided that it was not enough, and as a result, they rallied together in conjunction with other churches, organizations and news media to call upon on other Africans around the World and in the region to help ordinary Africans such as children, women and men back home -who at that time of the height of the wide spread of the Ebola virus were the victims.
And as a result of such urgency, the church held two back to back Ebola Donation Drive events, which ran on Saturday, August 23, 2014 and the following Saturday, August 30, 2014 from 9am to 6pm -and the church ended up with a warehouse and part of the church filled with donated supplies; also, they held an Ebola gospel concert in November, 1 2014, and it was hosted by some its most prestigious members: Mrs. Zinnah Barclay and Mr. Lobo Marwieh, Grandson of the late Bishop Marwieh -who was renowned for his peace keeping role in Liberia’s 14 year civil war.
Friends In Jesus International Church is part of the Nazarene churches and it’s located at 8115 Elder Creek RD, Sacramento, CA 95824; they are still accepting donations for the Ebola Donation Drive.
