2023 05 Nexus Mission Prayer Letter

Special Prayer Request: The container arrived at Olive City on April 28. By May 6 it had cleared customs and the goods were stored in our storage facility. But transporting relief goods within the country requires written government permission; and also during passage through the many checkpoints along the way, there are government officials looking for an opportunity to extract bribes. Please pray the goods are soon delivered safely into the hands of disaster victims.

The container’s goods are stored in an Olive City warehouse.
