This year, we were so excited to participate in the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Drive, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. It was so exciting to see the momentum build, as people bought supplies and volunteered to help pack shoeboxes. What a blessing to be able to fill boxes with toys, clothes, school supplies, toiletries, and other items that will be distributed to children worldwide! Most importantly, the Gospel message will be shared with each child that receives a box!
We filled 9 more shoeboxes than last year with a grand total of 76 BOXES! 39 shoeboxes were packed for boys and 37 for girls.
Thank you to everyone who helped pack boxes, paid for supplies and shipping, and prayed!
Some pictures from our Packing Party on November 19th:
We prayed over the shoeboxes and the families receiving them at Highway Tabernacle and at our sister church Resurrection Life Church on Sunday, November 20th.
Let’s continue to pray that the shoeboxes and more importantly the Gospel message bless children and their families this Christmas!
