This was our first year being a part of the “Operation Christmas Child” ministry, and it was a huge success. We sent out 61 boxes filled with the love of Christ that will reach children in various places around the world. Thank you to all who worked hard to make this happen, and everyone who filled those boxes. May God continue to use this ministry not just to bring a smile to these children’s faces in seeing the fun gifts inside those shoe boxes, but more importantly to bring the hope of Jesus Christ into their lives and the lives of their families! Pray that they will all enroll in the follow up discipleship program where they will learn to be followers of Christ and share Him with others, continuing the mission right where they are at!
