Mission Trip Opportunity!
Have you ever wondered if anyone checks all of those shoeboxes we pack for Operation Christmas Child? After all, what if they don’t have a toy or they do have a liquid in them that needs to be removed? What does U.S. Customs do with pallets of boxes when they find an inappropriate box?
These problems are solved by volunteers who go to Minneapolis on November 27, 28, 29 and work several shifts to inspect the boxes before final shipment. You can be one of these volunteers! There are jobs for people who need to sit and jobs for detailed oriented as well as task oriented. Please talk to Pastor Lisa to get all the details. The cost is a $16 registration fee that covers a couple of lunches and snacks. Hotel, gas, etc., will be additional cost to the volunteer. The hotel is being selected very soon and a firm price will be available.
This is not all work and no play! Each day we work a 4-5 hour shift, but on Tuesday, we have the afternoon and evening free to visit the Mall of America or kick back in the hotel. We will finish working on Wednesday around 1:00 pm and then head back home.
If you think this sounds interesting or fun, please see Pastor Lisa for all of the information or to sign up. They are hoping to get 50 volunteers from the stateline area. Merry Christmas!
