Christmas Shoebox Operation Fund
Organized by: Mariam Girgis
Matthew 28:18-20 (NKJV) Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age" Every shoebox gift delivered by Operation Christmas Child is a tangible expression of God’s amazing love. But a shoebox is just the beginning. It also presents an opportunity in more than 100 countries for our church partners to invite children into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through The Greatest Journey. Your help and support is greatly needed to complete this year Christmas Shoebox operation at St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church in Chicago, IL. Most of the needed items been purchased, but there still more needed, plus the shipping cost of the box. Each box costs about $10 and that includes shipping. The mission for this year is to ship 400 Christmas Shoebox to kids around the world. Christmas Shoebox is not just a box with gifts for a needy kid. In the hands of local churches, every gift-filled shoebox is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship—transforming the lives of children and their families around the world through the Good News of Jesus Christ! Would you help us raise the money that is needed to complete the 2016 Christmas Shoebox Operation?
