Operation Christmas Child 2015

Operation Christmas Child 2015

Thank you for another successful packing party. On November 5th, we had 60 folks pack 778 shoeboxes in 2 hours. What a blessing to be part of a Gospel Opportunity for children around the world to know JESUS through the simple gift of a shoebox.

Thank you for your generosity and prayers. We would like to thank Tyler Reichman and the employees of Aultman Hospital for donating 100 filled shoe boxes to the church. Our grand total is 929. A special thank you to Barry Shepherd for loading and taking our cartons to the collection site. Barry’s loading helpers were, Dick Housel, Bill Celce, Ryan Best and son. Thank you to all who help all year long, by working on shoebox projects we also thank all of you for your generous giving monetarily. Without your support we would not be able to fill 800 boxes or send money to ship over 400 shoeboxes. Please be in prayer that we will be able to send shipping for all filled shoe boxes in the future.

We are looking forward to starting our workshops for next year’s packing party. When one shoebox packing party is over we start working for next years shoebox ministry. Please continue to pray for the Operation Christmas Child Ministry. Please pray for our group leaving November 29th to process shoeboxes in Charlotte, North Carolina. Those going are Kathy Gibson, Maggie Rose Joan Schroeder, Nelda Sedares Cindy Mccombs, Jackie Putnam, Mary Wells, Brittany Taylor, Marcia Taylor, Marilyn Stutz,and Becky Roth
