It’s shoebox-packing time! Operation Christmas Child’s National Collection Week is November 14th – 20th… Below is a picture of a couple of the shoeboxes we packed this year, and we can’t encourage you enough to get involved as well. As Samaritan’s Purse explains:
“When you pack shoeboxes, Operation Christmas Child works with churches around the world to deliver them to children living in war, poverty, and disaster. Each box is a powerful expression of hope, joy, and love – but that’s only the beginning. Shoeboxes open the door for children to hear about God’s greatest gift – Jesus Christ.
After receiving a shoebox, many children choose to participate in ‘The Greatest Journey’, an exciting Bible study program to learn more about following Jesus and sharing the Good News with others.”
Please visit our earlier post here for a list of ideas and items to include in your shoeboxes.
