it blesses our souls to see the Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes being delivered here to J103.
Monday is the deadline and I am praying for 500 shoeboxes that we can take up to the LifeCare Center in Cleveland when we do the remote Monday. As of right now we have 46 boxes that have been dropped off. That leaves 453 to go! Wow! That seems like an impossibility...........except....
We just received a call from Chattanooga Christian Middle School saying 200 boxes are on the way. I am picking up some this afternoon from Boynon Elementary School, tomorrow from Whitfield Academy, and I have a couple churches who's boxes are going to be included in our trip to Cleveland.
We still have a ways to go. Will you help us out? I have stacks of the Operation Christmas Child "How-to" brochures in the lobby here at J103. The brochures give you ideas on how to pack your shoe box. It also reminds you to put the $7 per box to help with shipping, and it has a label that you can choose between a girl and a boy and a little box to check which age group your box is most appropriate for.
Samaritan's Purse will place a Children's book that shares the plan of salvation through Jesus in each box.
Hundreds of children, their families, and in some cases their entire villages are being won for the Lord! That is huge! And it starts with something so small.........a shoebox!
Remember-the deadline is Monday-Nov. 23rd at 1pm. Make your box one of the J103 boxes.
First of all I'd like to say I love the morning show, it's always a great start to my day and a blessing! I also have a very important question. A few mornings ago you mentioned something on the air about an evening dinner ride that the Tennessee Vally Railroad was offering. I went to their website to buy the tickets but cant seem to find the event. I dont know the exact name of the event but I think this would be the perfect gift for a loved one. Is there any way you can help me in my search? Thank you so much for your time.
