Christmas is right around the corner and we are super excited + a little scared because it seems to come faster every year! It’s easy and natural for our children to make their lists, expect great presents under the tree, and be filled with so much anticipation about what they’re going to get. But it’s so important that we teach our children how to give—it definitely doesn’t come naturally to most kids!
On today’s episode we wanted to take a few minutes and highlight an organization that has been changing lives for years. Operation Christmas Child began in 1993 and since has served more than 188 million children in more than 170 countries. OCC isn’t just about giving gifts to children. The shoebox is really the doorway into people’s lives to share with them the love of Jesus.
Our church, plus many other churches and organizations around the US, have joined in on this mission year after year.Our guest for this episode is a part of our church’s OCC leadership team. Jamie has been working with OCC for 4 years, she’s a military veteran, a newlywed, and serves in children’s ministry at our church as well.
PLEASE go and listen to Jamie's testimony that she opens up with. You will be incredibly encouraged and blessed to hear how God has moved and is continuing to do a work in her life.
Being a part of OCC is a GREAT way to serve as a family. Whether you pack boxes on your own or join in your church or other organization, you will be helping to share the gospel (Good News!) to children who may not have heard it before.
No matter what is going on in our world, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is always good news.
Merry Christmas Mamas!
