Numbers Are IN

After praying for nearly a year for our goals for the number of Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, the totals for 2012 were announced today.  In our Mid-Atlantic region we were praying for 800,000 boxes this year.  God blessed us with:


This is not as cool a number as last year's palindrome of 723,327 but since it represents a 10.36% increase that blesses almost 75,000 more children--I'll praise God for it.

For the United States we were praying for 6,500,000 boxes.  And the total is:


Again,  praise God for this wonderful growth.  He truly has done great things.

I don't have a final total on our international numbers yet, but I believe God took us beyond the 9 million we prayed for.

Bless the Lord, Oh my soul!!
