Well, 2012 season for Operation Christmas Child is over for another year.

I am pleased to inform the readers that Clearwater and area shipped 128 Christmas boxes to children overseas.

This is the most that our area has done. Good job Clearwater!

The picture shows the Kids Club at Clearwater New Life Assembly with 52 of the 128 boxes. That Thursday they learnt about a little boy in the Philippines who lives in a garbage dump and was about to receive his present. Maybe it was a present that was packed by someone here in Clearwater.

Giving a child a present does not solve all the problems. However, it brings such joy to that child. That child knows that someone, somewhere cares for them.
