Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. Our goal is to reach children with the gospel of Jesus Christ. God has used these little shoe boxes to open the hearts of children, and their families, and even entire communities.
As a church we have worked together to pack more boxes each year.
I am so grateful for the participation of all that picked up and filled shoeboxes for this project! 113 boxes were sent from Bethesda. This year many of the boxes were sent to the slums of central Ecuador and to Vietnam where they are mostly rice field farmers and laborers. I loved hearing all about friends shopping together, grandparents teaching their grandchildren about giving to others, and most of all the kids praying for the children that would receive their box. We will hand out boxes in September 2018, watch for sales on those special items you’d like to send in your box!
Feel free to watch for sales and pick up items throughout the year. Donations are collected in Parish Hall. If you have any questions or need ideas for items please call Yvette Jernberg.
