Last evening at Church, our children went shopping for Operation Christmas Child. As they were shopping at a local store there was a Mother and her two children there from a Spanish speaking country. In broken English she asked; what was going on with all these children? Our church representative told her about Operation Christmas Child. She became excited, stating that when they were in their home country that they received Christmas boxes from Operation Christmas Child and what a blessing they were. She also stated that now her family are all "Believers"!
What a tremendous testimony God gave the children of our church. They witnessed "first hand" a testimony of how God uses their small gift to bless others.
Remember when Jesus was told:
Mat 14:17 But they said to Him, We have nothing here except five loaves and two fish.
Mat 14:20 And all ate and were satisfied. And they took up the left over pieces, twelve hand-baskets full.
Mat 14:21 And the ones eating were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
No matter how small your gift; when given with the right motive God will use it to bless you and others!
