Good News! Great Joy! 35 Boxes!
Many thanks to all who participated in Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Ministry. Together, we purchased, paid shipping costs, donated money to pay for items, and packed the boxes on Sunday, November 13th. Our church donated 21 boxes and preschool parents provided 14 boxes — for a monetary value of more than $1,100! Thank you, MBPC and Preschool parents!
When we delivered the boxes to the drop-off location, a man there asked us to place a hand on one of the boxes while he prayed with us for the recipients of our boxes. Each box has a tracking label on it so that we will be notified of our boxes’ final destination.
Along with the boxes, children are given a booklet titled, “The Greatest Journey.” One church, the Elshadai International Christian Centre in Zambia, Africa, wrote, “We thank God for the gift boxes that gave our local church the opportunity to present the Gospel to children. We have seen our boys and girls grow in faith through The Greatest Journey lessons. They are now able to pray and share the Word of God with other children. May God bless all partners and supporters of Operation Christmas Child.”
We thank God for the opportunity to join in this ministry.
