Operation Christmas Child
We received this email from St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, the shoebox collection centre we send our school's Operation Christmas Child boxes to.
Dear Partners in ministry,
We are really excited to be able to report to you that your involvement with Operation Christmas Child this past season has brought an overall increase in gift filled shoeboxes of 5%! This is great news. Having each of you partner with St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church – OCC Regional Collection Centre – has made the “Operation” of this great ministry possible. In Canada we brought in 672,274 shoeboxes in the 2011 season. Each gift filled shoebox will reveal God’s unconditional love to a child and also serve as a Gospel opportunity. Our shoeboxes will go to Central & South America, West Africa and Haiti. We could not do it without you.”
God Bless you all,
The OCC Team at St. Andrew’s Collection Center
