November 10 – 20, 2019 Shoebox Project – Operation Christmas Child**
[Contact: Mica Vista]
**This program is under Samaritan’s Purse who brings boxes full of goodies to children in developing countries around the world to share the love, hope, and joy of God. Most of these areas have never heard of the love of God or are in an area where they could be persecuted for believing in God. These boxes create a HUGE impact on the lives of not only the children but also the area where they live; many churches have been created because of the impact of Operation Christmas Child. Most of the children that receive a box have never received any type of gift in their life before. The children not only get a box but they can receive eternal salvation!
November 23, 2019 Convoy of Hope***
