The West Central La team with Operation Christmas Child met to finalize plans for the upcoming Project Leader Workshop. The workshop will be held at First Baptist Church on Second Street in Natchitoches on September 11 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. 

A project leader is someone who organizes shoebox collection for a church or group. He or she is an advocate for Operation Christmas Child within their community. It is anyone who loves children and is passionate about increasing Gospel Opportunities through shoebox gifts. 

Each shoebox is packed for a boy or girl ages 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. The box is filled with toiletries, school supplies, toys, stuffed animals, clothing items and/or shoes. The shoeboxes are collected the third week in November. They are processed in Dallas, Texas or Atlanta, Georgia and then sent to over 150 countries. For many children this is the first gift they have ever received and the first time to hear about God’s love.
