I attend the Church of Christ at Milan, in Indiana. For the second year, we are participating in the Operation Christmas Child ministry sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse. Last year, as a church family, we donated 47 filled shoe boxes! The shoe boxes are filled with everyday items that are very much appreciated by the children in countries all over the world who receive them. This year our goal is to fill 100 shoe boxes for this outreach. Collection week will be November 12-19, 2012. If you are interested in learning more about this ministry, check out the website for a list of suggestions for items to include and how to pack the boxes: http://www.samaritanspurse.org/index.php/OCC/ . Please be in prayer for the success of this project. If you live in the Milan, Indiana area and would like to participate you may contact the church office at 812-654-2177 or our website at www.milanchurch.com . If you live far from us, there is a link on the OCC website that will help you find a drop off site near you! Let’s all get involved and see how God touches this outreach project!
I write a blog for my church and tend to write posts with a Christian or caring theme. I have recently begun blogging about my favorite hobby. I've been away from it for several years, but have been able to find more time for it recently. I recently found out that I am a diabetic. I have type 1 diabetes and am still trying to adjust my blood glucose levels. I will be getting an insulin pump soon and hope that helps.
