Peninsula businesses make mission happen

Posted: Friday, May 06, 2005

Recently, LuvaChild, a local mission organization, got involved with the staff at Heritage Place to facilitate the donation of used medical equipment from Heritage and clothing gathered by several area church communities to the mission work of Eleanor Workman in Haiti.

Janiece and Nina Knight of LuvaChild have worked for several years connecting Alaska with mission work in Peru and now Haiti.

However, this project would not have been possible without the generous use of one of Lynden Transport's 40-foot vans. Lynden, at no charge, will take the van to Houston. That is a tremendous help to this project. The leadership of Lynden has been most receptive to working with communities to make their transportation services available for these kinds of projects.

In addition, Blazy Construction provided a Bobcat and staff to lift the heavy equipment into the van.

We would especially like to thank Tim Koerber of Lynden for his support and Kelly Keating of Blazy for his short notice help.

Haiti has suffered through many natural disasters and any aid that will touch the lives of that country is greatly needed.

Ms. Workman, through her Christian Missionary Center, supports an orphanage among other humanitarian works in the country. She and her staff are grateful for Alaska's contributions.
