Praise to God for His faithfulness in answering our prayers once again. This year the Blue Ridge Area team of Operation Christmas Child set a God-sized goal of 15,000 shoe boxes. We received a total of 15,069 shoe boxes, filling both of our trucks to capacity (700 cartons). An overflow was taken to the Salem collection center. Ephesians 3:20-21 signs in my heart once again.
We ask that you join us in prayer for what happens next – as millions of children around the world hear the Name of Jesus Christ for the first time – as many receive their first gift – as millions feel loved of rite first time – as millions are saved and discipled through The Greatest Journey ( a 12-week discipleship program) – and as millions of children share the Gospel with whose around them.
Every shoe box has the potential for changing the eternal fate of a child – and possibly those around them. Let us never underestimate what God can and does do with these tiny treasures.
Thanks to all who prayed, who packed, and who participated in this amazing ministry to reach the lost. May God be glorified and His Kingdom be advanced by your love.
