Agents of Hope
Earlier this month, the Living Our Faith Together (LOFT) Connect Group decided to be Agents of Hope through Operation Christmas Child with Samaritan’s Purse. Together they filled 45 shoeboxes with deflated soccer balls, dolls, pencils, crayons, colored pencils, t-shirts, combs, socks, toys, washcloths, soap, and many more items, along with a special donation from a local dentist of toothpaste and toothbrushes. For the price of $7 for shipping, these boxes will go to many different countries and continents around the world. One Connect Group member was previously in a foreign country for distribution and was able to share with the group about that experience. It is humbling to think about how much hope is brought to a family who experiences the sharing of the gospel through the delivery of a Christmas gift.
