Utah Boy Scout Sends 170 Shirts for His Eagle Scout Project

Meet Reid Dallin Robison.  He is our oldest grandson and today we received the 170 white shirts he collected for African missionaries who come to the Ghana MTC for training, who might be lacking.

These shirts by the way, will be pressed, folded and stored in the MTC to assist the future needs of missionaries coming here.  How does one get that many shirts transported to Africa?  Networking! We contacted Stacey Hoffman, the principal over a Ghana Orphanage "Ghana Make A Difference" and she was most helpful in bringing the shirts with a group of students flying to Accra to perform service at the orphanage.

Here is a photo of Stacey and also of her team:

Stacey Hoffman is pictured here with Selasi and Doris.  Doris will be folding and organizing these shirts.
