Christmas is coming and one way that you can bring joy to a child this year is participating in Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child.
Before our family was even called to work and volunteer for Samaritan’s Purse we participated in Operation Christmas Child. Now that we are in the field we have had the opportunity to share the Story of Christ with children and hand out boxes. In September Karen was at the Baptist humanitarian house for Venezuelans which helps the caminantes and newly-arrived migrants with emergency services and job skill development. She was participating in a sewing class with several ladies, and was able to see children receive their OCC boxes. IT IS AMAZING TO SEE THE CHILDREN'S EYES AS THEY OPEN THEIR BOX!
November 15-22 is Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child. Below is a link that will explain how to pack a box, where to send it, what you should pack, and much more. https://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/ Gather your family, church group, or pack a box by yourself this weekend.
We would love to hear your story about packing a box and photos. Love, The Whites
