Collection of 50 boxes for shipment to children overseas in poverty-stricken communities in Honduras.
Items are purchased by our members: school supplies, small toys, candy, hygiene items, clothing, a small Spanish New Testament, and more. We also include a card signed personally by a member. All items are separated, placed in the boxes, and gift-wrapped for shipment.
Our Outreach for Christ ministry helps fund the shipping charges for this project, although we have also received generous donations from other sources to help with shipping costs. Ladies from other churches of Christ have made clothing items to place in the boxes.
Like the Magi who brought gifts to the Christ-child, this ministry supports bringing gifts to children, whom Christ specifically mentioned in Scripture: Matthew 19:14.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” NIV
