Operation Christmas Child Exceeds Goal of 2,465 Packed Shoeboxes

A GREAT celebration for Operation Christmas Child was held recently at South  Winnfield Baptist Church. There were cheerleaders with yells, songs prayers, and praises for what God did during 2022.

Winn Parish passed their goal with 2,465 packed shoeboxes.  This was  an 11% increase from the prior year’s total. Our West Central La team, which includes Winn, Natchitoches, Sabine and Red River parishes packed more shoeboxes per capita than ALL the teams in Texas and Louisiana.For each shoebox packed for ages 2-14 both boys and girls ten people heard the Gospel. For every 6.5 shoeboxes donated, 1 child will spend eternity in Heaven. Your packed shoebox makes an eternal difference in a child’s life.Candy Bedgood, Drop Off leader for Winn Parish at First Baptist Church, Jeanine Ford, Area Coordinator for West Central La team, and Ciena Thompson, church relation team member is willing to help your church, organization, group, school or business to begin packing shoeboxes for 2023. They have resources, materials, shoeboxes, ideas and videos to share with you. 

Start early and pack one more shoebox.
