Every year when we come to pack the shoeboxes there are a few items we have plenty of – which is great because any surplus goes to the warehouse to be used as fillers. Inevitably however we often find ourselves short of some other things! For these reasons I thought maybe this year we could collect some things for two months instead of just the one. I’m suggesting therefore that we continue to collect soaps and flannels during February.
Please remember though these are only guidelines! I’m sure by now you all know what can and what can’t go in the boxes, so feel free to put things in whenever you want to!! I can easily sort them out.
By now hopefully most of the children will have received their gifts, and will be enjoying them and experiencing the joy of having received a present – maybe the only one they will receive during their life time.
Please join me in praying that over the coming months many of these youngsters will come to learn of the love of God in sending the greatest gift – His son as the Saviour of the world, and that they will come to know true joy and happiness in following and serving Him.
Thank you again for all you do and God bless you all.
