Operation Christmas Child 2020

“WOW” is a word we usually use to express pleasure or surprise. In whatever language is spoken, it is the word we hope will be used when a child opens a Christmas Shoebox packed here at Bethany during our November packing party.As shared last month, we once again will be collecting items to pack in boxes that will end up in some city or village in another part of the world. Beside the basics that we like to collect like crayons, coloring books, hygiene items, and small toys, it is our goal for each box to contain one special item that brings a “WOW” or some other expression of delight when that box is opened. For some boxes, that may be a baby doll, a stuffed animal, a Barbie doll, or a soccer ball. This one gift usually falls in the $5 to $6 range. Older kids always are a challenge for us when it comes to this special item. Realizing that most of the world is heavily involved in soccer, we have found a source for purchasing soccer balls and air pumps for approximately $6 per set. Our goal is to have about 50 soccer balls available to pack in our November shoeboxes.Should you desire to help, but do not like to shop, see Sheryl MacPhee or Jo Kuhnle and they can assist you. Thank you for being so gracious in helping to reach the children of the world for Jesus.
