Sabine Parish Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Celebration

A celebration for Operation Christmas Child was held recently at Calvary Baptist Church in Many. There were videos, prayers, and praises for the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes donated during 2022. Each church’s and group’s Operation Christmas Child donation was celebrated. These Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes, which are distributed in countries all over the world, not only include toys, school supplies, and other items; but include the Gospel of Jesus Christ printed in their own language. One packed shoebox makes an eternal difference in a child’s life and for each shoebox packed, ten people are positively impacted by the Good News of Jesus Christ. For every six shoeboxes donated, one child will spend eternity in Heaven. 

The West Central Louisiana area, which includes Sabine, Winn, Natchitoches, and Red River parishes collects more shoeboxes per capita than ALL the teams in Texas and Louisiana. There are 2 drop-off locations in Sabine Parish: Calvary Baptist Church in Many and Mitchell Baptist Church in Converse. 

Cherry Wells, Drop Off leader for Calvary Baptist Church in Many and Glenna Ott, Drop Off leader for Mitchell Baptist Church in Converse are willing to help your church, organization, group, school or business to begin packing shoeboxes for 2023. They have resources, materials, shoeboxes, ideas and videos to share with you. National Collection Week is always the third week of November. Start early and pack one more shoebox.
