Christmas Shoeboxes Part 1: Stroiesti

We gave out over 180 Christmas Shoeboxes this year at our annual Stroiesti Christmas program.  The children and teens in our Sunday school classes prepared songs, verses, and the Christmas Alphabet.  The choir from Diakonia church sang and supported the children.

Over 70 of the boxes were sponsored for specific children. These children attend Sunday School regularly, or have older siblings who attend.  We ran out of boys boxes early, but the older boys were happy to get a girl box when given the choice of a girl box or no box.  We’ll work on this for next year.

Thank you to everyone who packed a special box filled with Christmas Joy and the love of Jesus for those children who don’t always remember why we have Christmas.  For many of these children, the MBK Christmas box is the only gift they receive for Christmas. Thank you for blessing these children!
