Operation Christmas Child is another mission project sponsored by the Board of Christian Education. The project includes gifts placed in a shoe box that will be delivered to a child in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoe box is the first gift they have ever received. A list of acceptable items to fill the box is available as well. The shoe boxes should be back to the church by October 22 so they can be taken to our distribution center drop-off, which is Ebenezer Mennonite Church.
We have been successful in collecting 39 shoe boxes. Tracking numbers have been printed for each box, and the labels will be affixed to the shoe boxes. We will be able to follow the shipping locations of the boxes so that we will know to which countries the boxes will be distributed.
