Find out the impact that packing a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child on August 18 at 6 pm at First Baptist Church in Natchitoches. Jamacia David, a Full Circle Speaker for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child, will be speaking to us. She grew up in Guyana, a South America Country, and received a shoebox as a child. Jamacia will be presenting her story and how it was a life changing event for her and for her family.
Jamacia’s father was often away for months at a time because jobs were scarce and in order to provide for his family, he traveled to another country for work. While he was gone, Jamacia’s mother struggled to make ends meet on her own. One Sunday, God gave Jamacia a surprise-an Operation Christmas Child Shoebox gift full of new items just for her. Come hear how this prompted her to learn more about Him and years later, teach The Greatest Journey, a 12-lesson follow-up discipleship course for shoebox recipients. You also will not want to miss learning how God used the Samaritan’s Purse Documentary Facing the Darkness to connect her to her current role.
Jamacia will encourage and motivate you to pack one more shoebox this year so that more children can hear the gospel, more families will be reached, and churches will be planted.
