Operation Christmas Child 2016

Operation Christmas Child 2016

“Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes not only me but also my Father who sent me.” (Mark 9:37 :NLT).

Thank you, thank you, thank you! With your faithfulness and support of Operation Christmas Child
on November 3rd we had another successful packing party. Sixty men, women, and children packed 881 shoe boxes in 1-1/2 hours. What a blessing to be part of Gods plan to offer Christ to children around the world through the simple gift of a shoebox. Thank you Bill Celce, Bob Stutz, Bob Warner, Verle Diebel, and Tim Roth for load­ing 42 Cartons which held a total of 941 shoe boxes. Also thanks to John Roth and Mike Mossor who provided transportation to the collection site at The Church at Carter’s Orchard. We look forward to start workshops for next year’s packing party. Operation Christmas Child is a year round mission. Our approximate cost for each filled shoe box was $8.00. We buy most items in bulk. This is not possible without your prayers and offerings. November 27th-30th Kathy Gibson, Joan Schroeder, Maggie Rose, Jane Jarvis, Patsy Shepherd, Nelda Sedares, Karen Jones, Cindy McComb, Marcia Taylor, Britta­ny Teems, Patty Hile, Rita Roth, and Becky Roth will be traveling with Making Memories Tours to Charlotte, NC OCC processing center, to inspect shoe boxes. Please pray for safe travels for all participants of this great ministry.
