Update on Luke's Eagle Project

Just thought I’d give you an update on Luke’s Eagle Project. Janae can correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that all the boxes have been sent. They ended up sending me over 60 boxes worth of school supplies, clothes, toys, hygiene kits and other things for the children of Afghanistan. The mail clerks will be so glad to see an end to the project as they’re tired of having to lug all my boxes from Phoenix to here for me. I’ve got so many boxes under my bed that there’s no room for anything else. I had them stacked on our desk, on the floor and anywhere I could find an empty place. Merrill even let me store some in his room. They only have three in their room right now so I was able to put boxes in the 4th person’s space. Aaron also took pity on me and let me store lots of boxes in their connex. Even so, I still have boxes everywhere.

I’m not complaining though. It’s been great to see the generosity of so many people who either donated goods to be shipped or money to pay for shipping. You guys are great.

So here are some photos of the boxes just waiting to be distributed.

I’m hoping that we’ll get the stuff out soon. School starts here later this month and I’d like to get the supplies to the kids and teachers before too long.

A view of the boxes under my bed.

Uh - Bob you might want to get those boxes delivered soon. Our Relief Society sisters were so generous in their donations and their commitment to make blankets and hats that on March 23rd, if we can get the funding to send them all, you should have another 50 boxes coming your way, and right now most of them are xerox paper size boxes. Hope this is good news!! We sure had fun and found so much joy in this service. Thanks for allowing us the opportunity!! Sorry we can't be there to help you haul them from the p.o. to wherever it is you'll put them. Jacquie
