Elementary students enjoyed having Mrs. Diane Proctor and Mrs. Janet Dapper speak in chapel this morning. Mrs. Proctor and Mrs. Dapper work with Samaritan’s Purse each year with the “Operation Christmas Child” project. Our elementary students will be bringing in shoe boxes packed with Christmas gifts for children in other countries. Mrs. Procter shared the “How to Pack A Shoe Box” video, but our favorite video showed the children receiving their shoe box and opening it.
Besides all the gifts, each shoe box will include a storybook telling the children about Jesus and inviting them to know Him. Many of these books will be used to touch entire communities for Christ. Fifth grade students, Alexandra Collins and Caleb Kendrick, assisted with packing a shoe box for a boy and a girl. We have our first two shoe boxes on the table that has been set up in the foyer for the many boxes that will come in. Our students were encouraged to pray over their shoe boxes and for the children that their gifts will go to. Thanks to Mrs. Proctor and Mrs. Dapper who come each year to help us with this project!
