From press reports
The 2013 Operation Christmas Child collection week is November 18 through 25. Boxes are available at Penny’s From Heaven and the Winston Baptist Association.
Boxes may be filled with school supplies, small toys and games, books, soap, toothpaste, and toothbrushes. Boxes are also specifically designed to the age and gender of the child.
“These boxes are a great way to share Christ with children all over the world.”
Operation Christmas Child is an organization headed by Samaritan’s Purse. Bob Pierce and Franklin Graham began Samaritan’s Purse after seeing some of the poverty stricken pagan people and the despair the pagan religion made the people endure.
Every year Operation Christmas Child reaches millions of needy children all over the world by delivering the boxes as Christmas gifts. These boxes are used as a doorway to introduce the love of Jesus to the children and their families.
The Christmas boxes are a shining light in a dark world. They give children all over the world hope.
For more information on how you can be a part of sharing Christ’s love and hope with a child please contact Mary Ann Yates at 662-773-7639 or pick up your Operation Christmas Child boxes at Penny’s from Heaven or the Winston Baptist Association.
