Dear Operation Christmas Child Partners.“Thank you for participating in this past season, 2016 Operation Christmas Child. Every single shoebox makes a huge difference; they all add up
one by one. The Tacoma area collected a total of 14,954, which
includes the boxes donated by
ALL OF YOU! The U.S. gave
over 71/2 million and all the sending countries combined gave
over 11,485,662 shoe boxes. It
is incredible to see how God
continues to use this simple project to impact the lives of
thousands for his kingdom.”
Dan & Christy Geraldo, OCC Tacoma Area Team.
Please Note: There are 2 copies of the OCC SPECIAL REPORT
on the back table which feature stories about children all over the
world who received shoeboxes, and how their lives were changed.
Feel free to take a copy home, read it. and then return it to the
table for someone else to read.

Coming Event:
June 20-22 – EFCA One (Annual) conference, Austin, TX.
