As those long hot days of summer are now upon us, Christmas seems so, so far away but truly for a child who has nothing, these shoeboxes are distributed every day to children around the world to help spread the name and message of Jesus Christ.
In June we were blessed to hear from a young man who as a child had received a shoebox. This young man is now a spokesman for Samaritan’s Purse sharing his message of how that one small shoebox impacted and changed his life.
For the months of July and August we will be collecting school supplies such as crayons, markers, pencils and pens. Collection boxes are located in the Welcome Center and in Fellowship Hall. Above all, keep this program in your prayers as they reach out to children and families around the world.
