Many thanks to all of the people who contributed to our October 22nd Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Packing Party! So many people donated items throughout the year, gave money to be used, helped to sort and prepare the items for the boxes, helped to set up on Saturday morning, brought soups or cookies for our lunch, and helped to pack the boxes.
Thank you, and again thank you! The boxes will be dropped off at our local collection site, Calvary Church, the second week of November.
From there, they will go to a Samaritan's Purse processing center, and then they will be sent around the world as a gift of love and hope. Please continue praying for the boxes. Each box represents a chance for a child to hear the gospel. Many who hear the gospel receive Jesus as their Savior and then go on to The Greatest Journey discipleship program. And then many of THOSE start teaching The Greatest Journey to make more disciples. So you can see that our shoe box ministry helps us to live in the vision of our church to Send Disciples!!!
