Operation Christmas Child – How are you progressing with packing shoeboxes?  Please remember that in addition to the toothbrushes, pencils, soap, etc. we send, literature in the proper language will be added to the shoeboxes to introduce the children to Jesus.  How much is that worth of each child?  I’ll say it is beyond any number value we can put on it.  Isn’t it great to be able to be a part of this grand ministry?  Working together, we can doing something very special for the children who receive the shoeboxes!
