Our first year as an OCC drop-off location!
We praise God for the results of our first year as an Operation Christmas Child drop-off location: 1,059 shoe boxes filled with age- and gender appropriate toys, gifts, and personal items, received from 37 donors (including 95 boxes from FCCEM)
On Monday, we delivered to Harvest Bible Chapel in Davenport the last cartons of boxes we had packed using the boxes donated at our lcation. Those cartons were immediately placed on semi-trailers for transport to a processing center, we think in Denver.
Our great thanks to every donor - churches, schools, community groups, and individuals. Every shoe box brought to our church during the last week will bless a child somewhere in the world, as well as that child's family and friends. Hallelujah!
Earlier this year, God opened this particular OCC door to us, and in faith, we walked through. In the understatement of the year, we can say we're glad we did.
