Then our next mission in .. Operation Christmas Child was to fill the pantry of this family. What good would gifts for Christmas be if your children were hungry? We collected a few things on our own, but nothing near what I wanted to take to this family. They had been through so much and to have this Mother know that she could feed her children without any fear of what she would feed them at the next meal. The next step was to contact the director of the Baptist Women Group and she was so happy to help.
It was announced in church that Sunday that the next Sunday we would be collecting for this family. Prayers began that God would send lots of food. When people showed up that collection Sunday for Sunday school and then church, the donations just kept adding up, and up and up .. As always, God had answered my prayers. We had collected enough food for this family to pack their pantry. This is what Christmas is supposed to be all about.
Again, Supporters had come to the aid of this family. Thank you Hillcrest Baptist Church for signing up to help this family. You are precious people, and the members of BLT thank you for your support.
