Christmas Box Sponsors 2014

Thank you to everyone who made up Christmas shoeboxes for the children in Romania.  This year, the children in Stroiesti will receive boxes from Texas, New York, Mississippi, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.  I’ve even heard that we have some boxes coming from Alaska!  Thank you to all the churches, offices, school groups, families and individuals that made up boxes.  These boxes are not only a fun Christmas present for the children.  For some, the Christmas box is the only gift they will receive at Christmas time. We use these boxes as a ministry tool.  The children come to our Christmas program where the children and teens in our Sunday school classes perform skits, songs, and recite verses and poems.  The Gospel message is shared at this Christmas program.  For most of those who attend, it is the only time each year that they hear the real meaning of Christmas. We know that most of the children who come are coming just to get a Christmas box, but we use that opportunity to tell them about Jesus.

Thank you again to everyone who packed up boxes–filled with love and hope! You have brought smiles to faces of so many children and have shared the love of Jesus!

Here are pictures of some of the folks who made up boxes.  I’m hoping to get some more pictures, so this is only part 1.
