…. Operation Christmas Child Box Collection Week!!!!
Have you thought about joining us in our participation this year with Operation Christmas Child?
If you haven’t had time to learn how to pack a box, I have a video to help you!!!!
Larry and Bob and the Veggie Tales Crew have joined
Operation Christmas Child
to help spread the Word
and encourage others
to share the true meaning of Christmas
in your neighborhood
and around the world!
Click here for a cute video showing you how to pack a box
starring Bob and Larry!
from Veggie Tales
and Operation Christmas Child
to use in your family!
What a blessing it will be this week for my family
to host a Movie Premiere of the newest Veggie Tales Movie,
“Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas”
and reach out to our neighborhood
with the Good News of Christmas
share the opportunity we have to bless others
through Operation Christmas Child!
(Stay tuned for pictures and an update about this special time in a blog post soon!!)
Even if you can’t fill a shoebox
- online or in person this week -
there are two special ways that you can provide support
to Operation Christmas Child this month:
“…. HELP US COVER OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD IN PRAYER NOVEMBER 18-25″
With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints. (Ephesians 6:18, NASB)
From the website: ”Gift-filled shoeboxes are a powerful way to introduce children to God’s greatest gift, salvation through Jesus Christ. Your prayers are essential to the work of Operation Christmas Child, so please join us during National Collection Week Nov. 18-25. Our goal this year is to collect 9.8 million shoebox gifts from the United States and nine other countries. During the week, we will pray for the people packing the boxes, the volunteers who will be collecting, processing, and delivering the gifts, and for the children receiving them.”
To sign up to pray specifically for the ministry, go here!
Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.
There are many ways that Operation Christmas Child welcomes your help! Be sure to check out this link for more information! Over this next week, there will be needs that we can help fill by being willing to be a part of the world-wide work of the ministry to help collect shoeboxes in your area!
I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences about volunteering with Operation Christmas Child!
Do you plan to be a part of the ministry this year?
