It is time to start thinking about packing shoeboxes for Samaritan Purse’s Operation Christmas Child. Jo Stauffer is heading up this ministry once again. We are tentatively planning 3 packing parties on Saturdays: October 30, November 6, and November 13. We sent off 126 packed boxes last year. Do you think we can do that again? If you haven’t already started to collect items for the boxes, you can go to www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/what-goes-in-my-shoebox-suggestions for suggestions about items that are appropriate and acceptable to send.
Our mission for the 4th Quarter will be Samaritan’s Purse. Go to www.samaritanspurse.org for more information about the many different things that this international relief organization participates in. The money donated will be used first to cover the collection, processing, shipping, and gospel materials that will go with our shoeboxes. Any remaining donated funds, will be given to Samaritan’s Purse to use for their many other ministries.
