Last month, CrossTraining announced the Timothy Project: Liberia 2015 and the goal of Liberian Institute for Empowerment (L.I.F.E.) to fill a shipping container from Colorado to send to Liberia with soccer equipment and school supplies. Currently, CrossTraining has been able to collect over 500 pieces of soccer equipment including Colorado Rapids jerseys, cones, training vests, backpacks, and cleats for the container project.
CrossTraining supporters will recall the ambitious project to ship a container to Liberia from 2015. CrossTraining collected over 500 pieces of soccer equipment including Colorado Rapids jerseys, cones, training vests, backpacks, and cleats for the container project. Thomas Fahn, Director for Liberian Institute For Empowerment (L.I.F.E.) shares the following update with CrossTraining
We just want to update you on the current status of our “Container Project.” We’ve made tremendous progress so far. Presently, we have packed about 60 boxes and 9 barrels with school supplies, text books, sporting equipment, and non-perishable food items. We are currently in the process of raising $ 4,500.00 to cover the cost of shipping and clearing these items once they arrive at the port in Monrovia.
Please continue to pray with us for financial breakthrough.
Thanks once again for your prayers and support!

The hope and intention was to ship the container by mid-October in order for the shipment to arrive in December; however, L.I.F.E. has encountered several challenges including:
Please pray for Fahn and L.I.F.E.as they look to raise the final amount of money to ship the container overseas.
