Spreading the Love of Jesus School Serves as Drop-off for Operation Christmas Child
The Baker View Christian School in Bellingham volunteered in November 2006 to be the drop-off center for Operation Christmas Child for Whatcom County.
Operation Christmas Child, a part of the Samaritan’s Purse ministry, sent more than 6 million Christmas shoe boxes abroad last year.
Students, staff and volunteers at Baker View were a small part of this effort as they checked in, filled and boxed up nearly 800 shoeboxes stuffed with toys, treats and essential items for needy children around the world.
Once the shoeboxes were ready, the students carefully sorted and packed them into larger boxes, loading them on a moving truck for the first stage of their journey overseas.
Before the truck, loaded with Christmas joy, left the school distribution center, students and staff prayed that those who received these gifts would truly feel Christ’s blessing and come to know Him better.
