Transporting Blankets for Turkish Earthquake

Turkey: Today we are loading up the truck with blankets and warm winter clothes that have been donated by Turks in the Antalya area. The drive to Van and surrounding cities in the earthquake zone is 1400kms which should take about 23 hours to drive. Family will stay here. I might be gone a while. Appreciate prayers and thoughts.

The situation is bad. It’s freezing cold at night and thousands of families are homeless. Report here [PDF] We need to raise some money for the earthquake efforts, and in particular enough diesel money to make these trips . If you want to donate, [and be the first one] here are the details for bank transfer.
