Day One of Drop-Off Week

‘Twas the night before National Collection Week

And all through the land

Volunteers were busy preparing

The time was at hand.

The signs were all hung

Announcing shoebox drop-off right here

In hopes to reach millions for Jesus

Through gifts collected this year.

Families and friends, young and old

Made final touches on special gifts untold

Filling them full with toys to the brim

Or building online—it all points to Him!

Each shoebox represents a child—

turn your thoughts to this

A Gospel opportunity we don’t want to miss.

Pack a shoebox gift and reflect on the One

And the hope we have because God gave us His Son

(Shared from an Operation Christmas Child post.)

“Get up,

cry out in the night,

even as the night begins.

Pour out your heart like water in prayer to the Lord.”

~Lamentations 2:19 (NCV)~

This is the day-by-day schdule for dropping off shoeboxes this year.

Thankfulness – Day 15

Today, I am thankful for those who share the Gospel. They might be pastors, Sunday School teachers, missionaries, evangelists, or untitled Christians. They know our responsibility to tell others about Jesus and do so.

19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

~Matthew 28:19-20, NIV-
