Operation Christmas child

25 boxes and counting. What a blessing these will be for children in need in Melanesia and the South Pacific!

Every year our church participates in "Operation Christmas Child", a ministry of Samaritan's Purse that involves millions of people all over the world communicating the love of God to children living in poverty and war-torn areas.  How do we do this?

By filling a shoebox with goodies such as school supplies, hygiene items, small toys. . .and lots of prayers.  Each box also includes a gospel message in the local language of the child receiving it and the children are given the opportunity to connect with local churches and aid organizations that can assist with long-term development programmes and spiritual discipleship.

Once again, I am so proud of our little flock here at New Hope Church.  I know that God is pleased by BIG generosity from this small group of people.  (Many more people were involved than pictured in this photo.)
