The month of November is the culmination of an entire year of shopping for your shoebox items. The youth will be packing the shoeboxes with what you’ve donated all year and getting them ready to go on the first leg of their trip to Princeton and then onto Charlotte, North Carolina. From there they will be distributed to children around the world who, for some, will hear the name of Jesus for the first time. They will hear the stories of Jesus and hopefully give their heart to him and then spread the word to their families and villages. That’s’ why we do what we do – to spread the name of Jesus around the world.
What I will need from you this month is an hour or two of your time. The week of November 12th is collection week so I will need volunteers to work in the Welcome Center receiving shoeboxes from 10:00 to 2:00 pm. This is where the ladies (or gentlemen) can help out. Then on November 17th we will hopefully load up and take all that we’ve collected down to Princeton and that’s where I need strong arms to help. This is hard work so I need some strong men to meet me in the Welcome Center that morning. Times to be announced soon.
Please pray for collection week around the country as well as distribution of shoeboxes around the world. Your help and prayers are greatly appreciated.
