Operation Christmas Child’s Project Leader Workshop Gears Up for National Collection Week

The Project Leader Workshop for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child was held in Natchitoches for the West Central La team.

The team covers Red River, Sabine, Winn, and Natchitoches Parish. Bill Huggins is the area team community relations coordinator and he encouraged schools, businesses, and organizations to participate and promote packing shoeboxes.

Freida Berry is the area team church relations coordinator for the team. Freida explained the importance of packing shoeboxes and the need to pack “one more box.” Packing of shoeboxes should always begin with prayer. Helen Antilley is the area team’s prayer coordinator. Helen explained how every box should be covered in prayer. Natchitoches Parish was well represented at the workshop with 12 Churches and 4 Community participants.

National Collection Week is November 15-22, 2021.
