To the Editor: I have to stay thank you to all the individuals, churches, school groups, and offices for your tremendous response to Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child shoebox packing.
Together we all packed 2,274 shoeboxes that will go into one of over countries to underprivileged children who may have never received a gift before.
Samaritan’s Purse does an awesome job of organizing the shoeboxes and setting up the distribution points with trained Pastors and lay people who will give them out to the children.
Then the children are invited back for a 12 week Bible student where each shoebox will reach up to 10 people with the Gospel of Jesus. Try to envision the face of a child who has never received a gift before and their excitement. When they hear the gospel message, they tell family and friends and more receive eternal life.
Thank you again for being so generous. If you missed out this year, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you early notice in 2020. So proud of our County.
