I’m not a great fan of hearing statistics I must confess; however there are two that thrill me. Firstly last year 11.2 million shoeboxes were sent by donating countries to over 130 countries around the world. Secondly, after getting permission, 2 million children enjoyed 12 weeks at the Greatest Journey course, of these over one million came to know Christ as their Saviour. The good news doesn’t end there though as these new little brothers and sisters in Christ immediately tell others the good news and as a result even more start attending Church and start to find hope in Jesus. Isn’t that something to get excited about?
Your generosity in donating items for our shoeboxes this year has as always been great, and on behalf of Samaritan’s Purse I would like to thank you. If any of you have, or can get any empty boxes during the first fortnight of November we do still need some, other than that our collections will stop until January 2018.
As you will have heard at CCC we are having a Coffee morning on Saturday 4th November. from 10am until 2pm where besides refreshments, activities for the children, there will also be lot of crafts and goodies to buy. This event is to raise money for the transportation of our boxes. I do hope you can come, and look forward to seeing you there,
