Blessed are those who mourn,

for they will be comforted.

Operation Christmas Child Workday Report

We had a good turnout of people who were focused on packing shoeboxes for the 2-4 year old boys. Due to their hard work, a hundred shoeboxes were packed in less than two hours. Great work by dedicated volunteers!

We will be working in preparation for the next packing day. If you want to be included, please let me know.

School supplies are in stores now. Some items are already on sale. It is a great time to make some purchases for OCC. Thanks to those who have done so.

Thank you for reading and praying today.
