It’s November and it’s crunch time. At a meeting I went to recently November was referred to as the Super Bowl of shoeboxes. It all comes together starting the week of November 13th when hundreds and hundreds of shoeboxes will be coming in from churches, organizations and individuals in the Raleigh County area.
Just think of the impact that these shoeboxes will have on the children and their families all around the world. Most of these children have never even heard the name of Jesus and are given the opportunity to learn about His love for them. Just think that this miracle all starts with an empty shoebox. Our youth will be filling shoeboxes with what you’ve brought in all year on November 5th and I am certainly grateful for that help. It’s a fun evening for them and a chance to learn something about missions. We hopefully will pack 100 shoeboxes that night.
Recently I asked 30 people to donate $30 to cover the shipping for these boxes and I’m still a little short. As of October 22nd, I had $420 of the $900 that I need to cover the shipping for the boxes the youth will be packing. Thank you to all who have donated so far but if my math is correct, I still need 16 people. So if you could find a few extra pennies sometime between now and the 17th of November, it would be greatly appreciated.
