Appeal for Shoeboxes now closed - a big THANK YOU to all who packed those boxes!
Breaking News - 2016 Target Smashed!
It's become a Christmas tradition at RoL Church to pack Shoe Boxes for the Samaritan's Purse, Operation Christmas Child project by way of contribution to over 900,000 units which were shipped from UK last year. A small shoe-box can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children’s lives all over the world in Jesus’ name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.
It was just reported that the River of Life, all time record of 345 units which were shipped last year, inclusive of 49 from general public was smashed this year as the final count revealed a massive 406 boxes including 19 from general public were packed. In her announcement Sunday 27 November, a delighted Tracy Hallwood thanked all the generous people who had made this possible either by packing boxes or in the organisation of the project by way of time and effort. Tracy made special mention that the quality of box contents exceeded all expectations and explained just how this would bless so many needy children during this Christmas season when help is desperately needed. Please stand-by for further news as shoe-boxes ship around the world.
Thanks so much for playing your part in this project of love through our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
