Decade of Partnership
This evening I had the blessing of being at First Presbyterian Church of the Covenant to present them with a plaque honoring them for more than a decade of service to Operation Christmas Child as a relay center and then a collection center.
I figure that over the past decade this church has been the hub for collecting and sending out more than 100,000 gift-filled shoe boxes to bless children around the world.
I don't think we could have grown the ministry in our area at the same rate without their joyous participation--without them opening their facility and using their heat and light to bless our donors--without the volunteers from their church who worked tirelessly to pack boxes into cartons, pray over them, and load them onto trucks.
We are so grateful to our friends at FPCC and to all those churches and facilities around the country who serve as relay and collection centers.
May God bless you abundantly for your faithful partnership in the gospel.
