"We are pleased and humbled that the ECA Division has chosen Pacific Press as its partner in this exciting project," said Dale Galusha, president of the Pacific Press. He went on to state, "We have designed our equipment capabilities for just such opportunities to enable church entities around the world to expand their publishing outreach."

The books will be packed onto 275 pallets and shipped in 15 containers with a total weight of 450,000 lbs. It will take about two months for the shipment to reach its destination. Once there, the books will be used for evangelistic campaigns in the East Central Africa Division.

"This project is a perfect fit with our core evangelistic mission," stated Galusha, citing Pacific Press's historic role as the non-English language publisher for church entities around the world. "It is a win-win for both entities and our employees are excited to play a role in furthering God's kingdom here on earth."
