Soaps, flannels, toothbrushes and toothpaste may not be “top of the wish list” for our children when it comes to thinking about presents, but to millions of children around the world who find these in their shoebox they are exciting and make them feel important and special. Children like 13 year old Jeanico from Madagascar who had never heard of Jesus until he was invited to an Operation Christmas Child shoebox distribution, where as well as receiving a shoebox he was invited to attend the Greatest Journey Bible course. These are his words: “As I went to The Greatest Journey classes, my life was turned upside down, I am now full of joy. I became a new creature because I received new life in Jesus.”
Jeanico immediately led his siblings to Christ. “All of us are now sharing Jesus boldly in our community” he said. “Praise the Lord and thanks to Operation Christmas Child”
Thanks indeed to this fantastic Organisation, and my thanks again to you for all you collect each month to fill the boxes. These toiletries will be our items for May.
Thank you for all you are doing in God’s name,
