Operation Christmas Child 
Here is a copy of a message sent to Operation Christmas Child.
“Thank you so much for all that you do for children. You all have a big and beautiful heart. I have four children who received the blessing of a shoebox. The joy and excitement that they felt was so great that it made me cry to see them because it’s been a very long time since they have been given a gift. I am a single mother and as I’m sure you understand, it’s very difficult to give something to each of them, but when they opened the shoeboxes, there was enormous joy. I live in Columbia, and I never imagined that here we would be blessed with these boxes. Thank you so much for these gifts. God bless you and give you health that you may continue to spread joy to the children. Xiomara G.”
The item for October is actually writing a letter to the child who will receive the box. I will schedule a couple times in October after worship for anyone who wants to help pack boxes. Remember, boxes will need to be at church by November 11 and each box requires $9 for shipping. 
Please ask me any questions. Jean Stephenson
