Sam and Denise wanted me to share an update and thank you from them regarding Operation Christmas Child 2018…
“A very sincere thank you to all who contributed to the success of this year’s OCC Mission Project. We exceeded our goal by donating a record 260 boxes and $3,329. Special thanks is due to a number of our members for their very generous money donations, and to Thrivent Financial and Walmart for donating gift cards which were used to purchase items to fill additional boxes. Please pray for the dedicated Samaritan’s Purse workers, along with the millions of children worldwide who will receive boxes along with a 12 week follow-up discipleship program. Pray that the kids, their families, and their communities will come to a lasting relationship with Christ as Lord and Savior. Keep in mind, now is also a good time to begin collecting items for next year with the goal of setting yet another record!!”

I want to give a special thank you to Sam and Denise who continue to do extraordinary work through Operation Christmas Child, but also in the many ways they serve our community. They are great role models and I pray that you can look towards them for inspiration and guidance.
