Once again, Parkview Baptist Church participated in Operation CHRISTMAS CHILD, an international mission sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse.
OCC organizes the collection and distribution of shoeboxes to needy children all around the world. People decorate and fill shoeboxes with toys, games, puzzles, pens, pencils, notebooks, crayons, coloring books, and all kinds of practical and playful items. Just as the shoeboxes are distributed free of charge, they are accompanied with literature on the life of Jesus and the salvation He freely offers to everyone.
In 2020, Parkview members contributed 732 of the 2,602 shoeboxes gathered by churches int he Eufaula region. A total of 10,569,405 shoeboxes were distributed worldwide as a result of the OCC 2019 drive.
Our praise goes not to ourselves for this undertaking, but to God who provides simple but profound ways for us to minister to others. To Him be the glory!
