Today is collection and dedication Sunday here at our church. Each year we fill shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child and have a special Sunday where we pray for them and send them off. We ask God to guide them to just the right places, connecting the right box with the right child. We pray for God to already be working in the hearts of these children so that they will not only enjoy this physical expression of God's love, but will also put their trust in Him and the greatest act of love ever given - His Son Jesus Christ who came to earth, died on the cross for our sins, and rose again to give us new life. You too can pack a box to send out this year! Just go to Operation Christmas Child | Shoebox Outreach of Samaritan’s Purse (samaritanspurse.org) to learn more.
