Sheree Perkins received a thank you letter from India! Her box went to a little girl, and the little girl's mother wrote a thank you letter saying that they were "so satisfied" with the items in the box, and that they were praying for Sheree!
Sherry Perkins is the Prayer Coordinator for the Hawaii Operation Christmas Child Team, and she was so encouraged to find out where her box went. Through Operation Christmas Child, keiki, families,schools,churches,scout troops, and others around the Big Island collected and sent 3,102 gift filled shoe boxes last year! The people of our island are amazing! We are going to celebrate on May 16, 2008 at Hilo Missionary Church,at 6:30pm. Please come and see what a difference your shoe box made in 2007! Come even if you have never sent a shoe box, and find out more about the power of a simple gift! This is a wonderful project that transcends all barriers-language, cultural, geographical, and political-to give hurting children joy and hope at Christmastime!
