MOPS loves Operation Christmas Child!

Teach your kids about giving with Operation Christmas Child (OCC). MOPS loves OCC and now is the time to participate in this annual service opportunity and include your children in the process. Invite your kids to pack a shoebox of gifts for a hurting child overseas of their same age and gender. Toys, school supplies, and hygiene items packed into a shoebox can all express the love of Christ to a boy or girl in need.

What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out is eternal. Through the power of Christ, one shoebox gift can multiply disciples, plant new churches, and inspire children to share the Gospel with family and friends. Since 1993, over 113 million children in 150 countries have had the opportunities to hear the Gospel through shoeboxes packed by people like you for Operation Christmas Child.

It's simple really.
1. Pack a shoebox (choose gender and age). There are millions of ideas on Pinterest if you're not quite sure what to include.
2. Pay $7 per box for shipping. You can follow your box and get notified of its destination if you pay for shipping online. Click HERE.
3. Drop off your box(es) at the MOPS meeting on NOVEMBER 13.
4. Pray for the child who will receive your shoebox gift.

This video explains it all (and my 4 year old wanted to watch it over and over again). :) :) :)
