Catalyst joined with First Baptist Gwinn in Support of Operation Christmas Child, a Franklin Graham ministry to provide shoe boxes to children throughout the world.
The Midwest Regional Office in Minneapolis announced over the loud speakers they had boxed up over 400,000 shoe boxes for needy children the world over. These show boxes show children the love of Jesus and come with a wide range of gifts and toys.
According to Ms. Stephanie, a young woman that had received one of the boxes twenty years prior came to the facility and spoke to the many volunteers, showing the impact this ministry has in the world. Operation Christmas Child is a wonderful ministry with many needs, so if you or your church group feels led to volunteer and become part of this ministry, please contact them at http://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/ where you can sign up to build show boxes online or attend one of the centers packaging the material for delivery.
