Deadling to turn in shoe boxes

Nov. 19 is the deadline for turning in your Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes.
David and Gail Miller of Because He Lives Ministries are asking for help in meeting their goal of having 7,000 shoe boxes to bring happiness to 7,000 children somewhere in the world.
From Hazlehurst, the boxes are delivered to the Samaritans Purse processing center in Atlanta. From Atlanta, some will go by air and some by sea to countries all over the world.
The children who receive the boxes are the poorest of poor children and for some this shoe box will be the only Christmas gift they will receive. The children that receive a box are also given an opportunity to participate in a 12-week Bible study named the Greatest Journey. The shoe box brings happiness to the children and the Bible study offers hope to the children as they are introduced to God who loves them and wants to help them.
Because He Lives Ministries will pack and loadi the shoe boxes onto the semi Nov. 19 at 2 p.m. Everyone is invited to help. Churches are invited to bring their children and youth groups to help.
