Operation Christmas Child
Good morning to ya'll. I would invite you in for a cup of coffee and warm, cinnamon, bagel but I am off to the church to pack cartons of shoe boxes. Now why in the world would I pack cartons of shoe boxes? If you look at the pictures above you will see these are very, special shoe boxes.
For the first time,Roy and I are working at our Church - First Baptist Adel, coordinating the drop off site. Churches and individuals in our area are bringing filled shoe boxes of goodies for children around the world. These boxes go to Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child and will be distributed by volunteers to children who are in great need of some joy in their lives.
This organization is operated by Franklin Graham and millions of children each year are blessed with a box of toys, candy, personal items, school supplies, clothes or anything you can stuff neatly in a shoe box. They will also be told about how God loves them and how to have an individual, personal relationship with Him through Jesus.
I am attaching the website URL to this posting so you can read all about it and you have until Nov. 23 to fill a shoe box and take it to a receiving site. You can find all the information on this website. We have been packing boxes for about 5-6 years and try to do as many as we can each year for it is a wonderful project. Read about it and participate if you can or send a monetary donation to Samaritan's Purse. Look at the site for how and where and help us reach many children in the world with love.
