“…remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
Christmas is in the air! Well, it is for those of us preparing for Operation Christmas Child anyway. If you’ve never participated in this terrific project, this year is your year. Operation Christmas Child provides you and your family with a terrific opportunity to remember that it is indeed more blessed to give than to receive as you prepare a simple shoebox full of gifts that a child on the other side of the world will never forget.
Matthew West and Amy Grant team up in this video to encourage us to “Give This Christmas Away.” I love watching the video footage of children receiving their shoeboxes. If you take part in OCC, you could be the reason for one of these precious smiles!
National Collection Week is coming soon–November 15-22. Please plan on being a part of blessing needy children around the world this Christmas.
