In 2013 our Missions Team went and ministered to the children of Life is Hope Orphanage.
Here we were able to teach them many things, including hygiene! We had them mix lotion and glitter together to understand how germs are spread. And then they were able to wash their hands to learn how best to wash to get most of the germs off from their hands. The kids loved it!
Children around the world are blessed each Christmas season by Operation Christmas Child. Volunteers around the Country pack shoeboxes full of gifts for needy children. Churches and communities collect boxes and fill them with toys, toothbrushes, books, crayons and more. This whole operation takes thousands of volunteers inspecting and preparing the boxes for international shipping. Around Christmas the shoeboxes arrive in more than 100 countries.
Our church and school have participated in OCC over the past few years. While the boxes are done being packed this year please feel free to visit https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/the-journey-of-a-shoebox/.
As the volunteers are getting the boxes ready they always stop for a few minutes to pray for the children who will receive the boxes. Let us join with them in prayer for all of those children, that they will truly be blessed and that they will be ministered to.
Here are a couple girls from our church, and 2 daughters of our missions pastor getting boxes ready this past year.
