Samaritans Purse Operation Christmas Child!

I found out today that the shoeboxes I registered on “track your box” went to Kenya and Malawi!  Where did your box go?  Please let us know where your box went.  It will be fun to see how far St. Paul’s boxes have traveled.  Please continue to pray for that child who will open your box. Pray that this child, known by God, will be touched with the message of Jesus’ love.  Such joy to share the Gospel of Jesus in the world! To God be praised!  Denise Yoreo,  Mission Board Chairman
