Title:Samaritan Purse Collection, Nov 21

Samaritan's purpse Operation Christmas Child collection

Today, St. Peter’s collected over 25 boxes for the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child.  "The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ." Nancy Long said this was the best year ever and thanked St. Peter’s for the support. 

One refugee retold the receipt of such a box -“It was such a joyful day,” Alex said. “It was neat because it made us think there was someone out there caring for us, who took the time to put the boxes together. It really made us happy, and it made us not dwell on the negatives of the genocide.”
