So Proud of Our Youth Group

Thursday, June 08, 2017

Had a great meeting with our new youth pastor today. We are planning for the youth group Operation Christmas Child packing party this fall. Last year they packed 60 soccer ball boxes. We haven't decided on a number for this year, but we are adding funny stuffed monkeys and sunglasses to the boxes. These will be for ages 10-14 boys and girls. These boxes go to children who come from impoverished circumstances and most have never received a gift in their lives. And they have little reason for hope in their lives. When they get these shoebox gifts, they are amazed to realize that someone from around the world would care enough to send them such a great gift, filled with hygiene items, school supplies and toys. But the greatest thing is to realize that God loves them and sent his Son Jesus to give them the greatest gift of all. This is the most amazing way to be involved in missions all over the world!
