...to bless a poor child this Christmas. 

We always find it a blessing to be able to join with many people all over the world in supporting Samaritan's purse & their Operation Christmas Child.

We often forget what a blessing it is just to live in a wealthy country.  So much we take for granted.

It is such a good lesson for our children in giving & caring for others...



Won't you join us & donate a box for a precious child somewhere?



"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.
'Matthew 25:40 (NIV)

For more details visit the Samaritan's purse site.


Have a lovely day

Did you sign up to follow your boxes? My children can't wait to find out where their box ends up. What I love about SP is that it is not just a box of gifts but a means of sharing the gospel - the beyond the box stories are amazing.

It is such a sweet ministry...and teaches our children to love others too.

It's wonderful to see how much it looks like the kids enjoyed packing their boxes.
With our Sunday School we packed quite a few boxes last term. They've been doing it for several years. I know how much our kids enjoyed doing it and have heard how much it means to those who receive it. I would whole heartedly encourage others to consider doing this too.

Yes! We've done our boxes and they'll be on their way on Monday. We had so much fun putting them together and it's so nice to think of the little ones opening them on Christmas Day! xx

Yes...we have done these in the past also! It is a great way to teach our children about giving.

Our church packs many boxes!! Such a fun experience for all. We have never followed the boxes so will have to look into that this year.
Our family mission is to find sandals that dont take up too much space in the boxes so the children can have shoes.

Have a great vacation!!
