Operation Christmas Child

and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me."
Genesis 22:18

Today marks 2 months until the beginning of collection week at Operation Christmas Child (November 16-23)  You can find more information on the project here.

Basically, you and your family pack shoe boxes with toys and the Gospel for children throughout the world, thus spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Why get involved?  The Lord commands it in Matthew 28:19 to go and make disciples of all nations.

We became involved with this project last year and with the Lord's help will continue to do so. The girls enjoy looking for items to fill the boxes with throughout the year.  They pray for the children receiving the boxes and their families.

Won't you consider getting involved?  And if you have in the past, won't you consider increasing the amount of boxes you make?
