We were shipping a bunch of parts for a combine head (which is quite large itself). Many of the parts were heavy and odd shaped. We were beginning to think we were going to have to try to take this load of parts the 350 miles to Illinois ourselves because nobody else was interested in all the hassle. MalawiExpress came through and offered to take it for our target price which was great!! He set a time to pick it up and ran into delays on other parts of his load ( he was picking up an old tractor and the owner failed to cut the trees that had grown up through it - so he had to wait about half a day to get it loaded - he never said a foul word of the owner - VERY PATIENT AND FLEXIBLE) He called and kept us posted. He arrived in the dark and helped us load each piece; many by hand because of the way his already loaded items were on the truck. He made sure all was secure which was quite a feat in itself really. Then as he was preparing to leave he gave us his business card which explained that his business is non-profit in that all of the money he earns goes to an organization to support the people of Malawi. When my husband asked about it he said that he was actually a pastor of a very small church and that he had started driving this truck 3 years ago only part time to raise money for this group of impoverished people. All that work for someone else! It was wonderful to see that someone could devote so much of their time to others and be so humble about it. MalawiExpress is definately a great asset to USHIP!! Affordable, Flexible, Friendly, and For a good cause! I LOVE IT!! Thanks _ The Snyders
