It was discovered that spiral notebooks purchased from Walmart have an American flag along with "Made in U.S.A.". If your church is filling school kits, take special notice of this. The flag and wording must be covered with a permanent marker or cut out. We need to make every effort to comply with UMCOR Depot policy as stated in the Thanksgiving Ingathering booklet--page 11.
Also, Iowa-Nigeria is requesting NO National Geographic magazines this year. They have an over abundance at this time. We thank everyone for generous hearts and may you continue serving in various ways for Thanksgiving Ingathering.
In Christ's Service,
