Relief Society sisters in the Barrigada Guam Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently organized a clothing donation for church members in the islands in Chuuk. Members throughout the Barrigada Guam Stake participated in donating clothes to help these members.

The collected clothing donation, filling 11 boxes, were shipped from the church’s Guam Service Center to the church’s Chuuk Namoneas District, which has 10 branches. Once the clothing arrived, the district president, Rodolfo Gacayan, had the clothes sorted and divided into 10 boxes, one for each branch.

A district leaders meeting was held at the Mwan branch meetinghouse in Weno, Chuuk on Oct. 8. Branch presidents came from the different branches, some making a 40-minute boat ride, to attend the meeting. As they departed, each took their box with them to distribute among their branch members.

From the Island of Tonowas, branch president HS Nakka expressed his gratitude for the box of clothing for his branch.

Sapuk branch president Smart Katta on the island of Weno said: “Kinisou chapur ren ei anini ikanai ren ekei pisek sia fokun kinisou ren tong mi pwa non ekeii aninis.”

The island of Romanum’s branch president, Siramino Walter, also expressed gratitude for the donation: “[The] Romanum branch, especially the families, are very happy and appreciative of the support and love that was given to us, the members here in the Chuuk district. Thank you so much and God bless you all.”
