Today is a special day! Each year we fill shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child and have a special Sunday where we pray for them and send them off. We expect to have over 100 boxes to pray over this year! The service is both a celebration and a time of prayer.
We pray and ask God to guide the boxes 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.
