But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”
~Matthew 5:43-44 NIV~

Pray for out Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Once again, yesterday, I had the opportunity to tell a store clerk about OCC. They just have to ask how I am using all the things I get to purchase. I, like some of you, cannot let the opportunity pass without sharing about this wonderful ministry. I get to inform children about Jesus and inform clerks about the OCC ministry at the same time.
