Processing Gifts for Children

No Black Friday shopping For this group.   These volunteers went to the Operation Christmas Child Processing Center in Dallas Texas instead of fighting the crowds shopping on Black Friday.

Marshall Robinson, Jr., Mary Tom  Cowser and  Dovie Beard from Martin Baptist Church along with Sigrid Hayes(not pictured due to illness) from East Point Mount Zion Baptist Church  volunteered at the OCC processing center November 25 and 26.

Group member Dovie Beard said “It is an awesome experience to go to the center and be a part of sending these boxes to the different countries and to be able to inspect the boxes for items not allowed to be sent.  We prayed over the boxes and we know that maybe the child that receives that box may come to have faith in Jesus Christ because of the love and prayers put into that box is an amazing feeling.”

The crates that were packed while we were there were being shipped to Honduras. If you don’t know about OCC shoeboxes or would like to be involved in packing boxes for the year 2023, please contact Dovie Beard and get more information.
