Three Northwest District Grace Brethren churches, Sunnyside, Toppenish and Goldendale, are linking arms in a project to send two containers filled with equipment to the new ICDI Base in the northeast part of the Central African Republic.
Equipment and tools are needed to equip an ICDI repair facility being built there under the direction of Jim Hocking, founder and CEO of ICDI. The repair shop will be used to refurbish trucks and other equipment during the rainy season when travel is restricted at best and well drilling and maintenance cannot be done. Vehicles will be torn down and rebuilt to maintain them for the usual heavy wear and tear they experience during the construction season.
An early October, 2010, date has been set as the goal to have the two containers loaded and ready to be trucked to a shipping port.
