Area group fills 150 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child

A group of six ladies packed 150 shoeboxes filled with items and love to be sent to third world countries. The ladies have packed shoeboxes for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child for the last two years and their group is called “To the Ends of the Earth.”

They know their shoeboxes will travel with the gospel and reach children in third world countries for the very first time. Each child receives a shoebox, a book “The Greatest Gift,” and an invitation to receive 12 lessons called “The Greatest Journey.” Upon completing the lessons, there is a celebration and each child receives a certificate and a Bible in their very own language.

Pack a shoebox and fulfill the Great Commission. Shoeboxes will be collected through Nov. 22.
