Operation Christmas Child Collection Week is only 31 days away!!!! It’s time to get serious about how you’re going to get involved. Are you going to pack a box? Are you going to volunteer or shop at the GO Store? Are you going to help out at the Fellowship collection center? We’d love to have each and every one of you in all those capacities, but even more importantly, we’d love you all to pray for this program. It’s easy, it doesn’t cost you anything, and you can do it in your own time. Samaritan’s Purse has even put together a guide for the next 31 days to give you some ideas on areas to pray for each day. Here’s the first seven to get you started:
Day 1- For God to prepare the hearts of the millions of children who will be receiving shoebox gifts this season to respond to the Gospel. (2 Thes. 3:1)
Day 2- For the success of OCC volunteers in their efforts to develop church, community, prayer and media partnerships. (Eph. 3:20)
Day 3- For every domestic and international volunteer leadership team to have a full complement of Prayer Mobilization Coordinators and team members to mobilize prayer.
Day 4- For an increasing number of faithful Prayer Network Partners around the world who lift up OCC and it’s mission year-round. (Mt. 9:38)
Day 5- For the provision of shoebox filler items through Gift-In-Kind donations to be used in the Processing Centers. (Joel 2:24)
Day 6- That OCC will bring hope to the hopeless, joy to the sorrowful, and Christ’s love to the lost- both to the children who receive the shoebox gifts and to their families.
Day 7- For Processing Center warehouse locations to be finalized in a timely manner.
Thanks for continuing to partner with us in this awesome mission- the countdown is on!!
