“Sending Good News and Great Joy, the Journey of a Shoebox”

by | Nov 13, 2018

 

We’ve been talking a lot about Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes lately. But, did you know about the journey these shoeboxes take after they’re packed and collected? These small gifts packed with love result in evangelism and discipleship for children and their families all around the world! This past Sunday we held our annual packing party and packed 200 boxes! CCF is also a drop off location for shoeboxes this week so people who’ve packed boxes in our community can make sure they get to the distribution center.

Click HERE to see what happens to these shoeboxes after they leave CCF, and learn about the ways they impact lives all around the world! If you haven’t packed or dropped off your box yet, click HERE for drop off locations near you! We are excited to see how God uses this ministry to keep spreading the Gospel and we count it a privilege to be able to partner with OCC. Keep these shoeboxes in your prayers that God would use them in a mighty way to bless and change lives!
