img_4111It may be difficult to imagine the impact a shoe-box full of lovingly chosen gifts might have on a child but the video ‘Wow!‘ captures some sense of that joy and amazement.

This year, the congregation at St. Stephen’s was able to donate 56 shoe boxes full of various gifts to Operation Christmas Child for distribution around the globe. Having left St. Stephen’s by a volunteer driven van, they have now begun their journey to an unknown destination somewhere in the world. They are sent with love and prayers, and wherever they arrive, we hope that they will bring great excitement and much happiness to a child in need.

‘I tell you the truth,
anything you did for even the least of my people here,
you also did for me.’
Matthew 25 v40
