We are Dixon and RoseMary Tiffany, we served a mission on the islands of Chuuk, Micronesia 2011-13.  And we have come to love these great  people very much.  We also are very grateful for the opportunity to help the Micronesian people after Typhoon Maysak hit.  It  has damaged so many homes and displaced families. One Chuukese friend Hirouyki Mori said “No one was without damage, and we were prepared,” he said. “I was lucky. I have a concrete house, unfortunately I (can) not say the same for many of my fellow Chuukese. Ships have sunk. Homes destroyed. Breadfruits, mangoes, bananas and coconuts, our local source of food … trimmed down to just stems and branches".
  We understand there are a lot of humanitarian organizations reaching out to help.  And we the missionaries and their families that have served in Micronesia are also reaching out and hoping to help the Micronesian people at this desperate time.
We're counting on the charity of those who can help them. 100% of the donations will be given to help the families rebuild their homes.  Please donate whatever you can and if you have any question, please leave us a message. 
Providing service to help the people in need could be a great Eagle Scout project or a Young Women Personal Progress Project.

We want to thank everyone for the love and support given to the people in Micronesia. Things are looking up again for the folks a little more now.
However we will continue mailing food bars and other materials that are needed and other things that are helpful.
If you would like to still donated something we are sending anything from books, sewing material, school supplies, food bars, solar flash lights, and over the counter medicine. As many of you might be already be aware the people live on small islands and things are extremely limited for them. If it is available to purchase it is very expensive and the folks just don't have the money to purchase it.
Please feel free to message us or Facebook us if you have questions or concerns. We are happy to answer any questions you might have. Thank you once again for all your love and support.

We just received another email from SHIPS-HOOPS today and thought we should share it with you all. We will continue to do everything we can to help the people of Chuuk. Thank you for your continued love and support as they continue to rebuild their lives. ~~~Please be sure to thank everyone who contributed! It was wonderful to see the look on the children's faces when they received their gifts! Our school is small and simple, but it is through such kindness that children learn they are loved. Things have been difficult lately, but we are now only three weeks away from the end of school, tentatively the last day is Thursday, May 28th. We face many challenges between now and the opening of school the last week of August. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers that Akoyikoyi School might continue offering a decent education to children, thereby helping them have a brighter and more prosperous future. I remain so grateful for all you have done for us over the years we have known each other. Thank you and all your friends, Clark Clark Graham SHIP-HOOPS & Akoyikoyi School~~~

I returned home from our school in the early afternoon and found postal documents for 10 boxes that you had sent. I cannot begin to express our thanks for these donations. I am reminded of the Bible verse my mother would recite to me. "In that ye do it unto the least of these my brethren, ye do it unto me."

There is no way one can say thank you enough, because your sharing is from the heart, it is a testimonial to works of love toward those less fortunate that you have provided, and it is gratefully appreciated.

Akoyikoyi School, her students and I say, "Thank you for caring, and for putting your thoughts into action. Your gifts will help our children."

Humbly and Gratefully yours,
Clark and Akoyikoyi School

Hi Sister Tiffany,
Greetings from the volunteer staff at the CWC Center. I hope everything go great with you and thank you very much for all your assistance in the donations as I mentioned I have received some boxes in the mail.
I have attached some pictures for you that were taken by one of the women associations from the island of Parem. They want me to send their appreciation and thankful hearts for all that you have done for them.
Fokkun kinisou chapur. I will send you more pictures later as some of the women just picked up their bags today.

FYI: The 607-island nation that is the Federated States of Micronesia is one of the most remote and beautiful places on earth. Friendly and peaceful, it encompasses nearly a million square miles of ocean north of the equator that is home to a cultural and biological diversity that is unrivaled anywhere. The Federated States of Micronesia sits in the heart of the Caroline Islands Archipelago, a vast seascape that extends from Palau in the west to Kiribati in the east. Situated within a rich center of biodiversity at the convergence of the major currents of the Indian Ocean, the Philippine Sea and the great Pacific Ocean, it is home to the world's greatest coral reefs and the best pelagic fisheries remaining in the world today. The FSM is made up of four groups of island States in geographic graphic sequence from west to east: Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei and Kosrae. Each has considerable autonomy and each is equally unique with its own geography, ecology, language and culture. This cultural identity is exhibited by the 17 indigenous languages used and very much alive today.
