Operation Christmas Child
November 11, 2021
Thanks to the generosity of so many - at Waitsburg Presbyterian Church - and in our community! Saturday morning we filled 60 shoe boxes with sundry holiday gifts! From tooth brushes to pencils to socks to soccer balls. These boxes will be sent off later this month to children living in poorer countries far and wide. A couple of years ago our own Becky Huwe was witness to the delight of children receiving these gift boxes. She was on a medical mission in a village in Burundi (Africa) when these shoe boxes were delivered to the village church where she was staying.
We know, too, that many in the Christian Church are filling boxes as well!
Operation Christmas Child gift-filled shoeboxes go to some of the most difficult to reach places on earth. In 2020 shoebox gifts for children were delivered to Eastern Europe, Africa, Latin America, and Central Asia.
