Operation Christmas Child

Thanks to everyone who participated in Operation Christmas Child this year.  Over 150 boxes were taken and we had 72 returned.  Some students chose to drop off their boxes themselves which was fine.  All 72 filled boxes were delivered to Bethel Lutheran Church on November 20.  From there they will be loaded into the semi trailer and this year are being sent to children in to Uruguay, El Salvador, Guatemala, Sierra Leone, Guinea Bissau, Venezuela, and Equatorial Guinea.

In addition to the scheduled countries, they have added 20,000 boxes to be delivered to children in Ukraine, as a result of the war this year.

What a great opportunity to share our abundance with the needy of the world.  And thanks again for participating in a tangible way!
