While you’re out this month buying groceries and toiletries for your family, would you consider picking up some extra bars of soap for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes? Full size bars of mild soap make a great addition to a box as a part of a hygiene kit that can include a washcloth, toothbrush and toothpaste as well. Another great item to pick up this time of year is a beach ball- it packs flat, you don’t need a pump to blow it up, and it is inexpensive. Would you join with us in praying for shoebox destination countries of Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, El Salvador, Mexico, Nicaragua and Panama? Pray for safe transport of boxes, pray for the recipients of the boxes and their families, and pray for the follow-up these children receive in discipleship programs through Samaritan’s Purse.
