Love Packages is a ministry that receives donated Christian materials to send to nations throughout the world that cannot afford them or cannot obtain them. In Butler, IL 20 foot ocean-going containers are fully packed and sent by truck and then barge to such places as India, South Africa, Liberia, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.
Bibles, Sunday School materials, Bible Reference books, Christian books, Christian magazines and Tracts, Christian CD's and DVD's are all packed by catagory and sent to 3rd world countries. Bibles in any condition, Protestant or Catholic are the most requested resource. For this reason we are especially asking for donations of Bibles.
Containers are sent out weekly and the cost to send these containers is $3,500 to $6,000 per load. Donations toward this cost is appreciated.
With only 3 employees, this ministry depends heavily on volunteers. You may bring a group of any age, for any length of time, to help sort and repackage materials. Two dorms and a kitchen are available at no charge.
Below are listed the many places that have provided space to collect donated materials. Please participate as you can.
