This past fall, the preschool and elementary chapel students at Broadfording Christian Academy were presented with a Christmas challenge by their chapel leader, Michelle Snodderly, and the students more than met her expectations.
Each class was challenged to pick a project from the Samaritan's Purse catalog and raise money toward the project. A total of $910 was raised. Some students did extra chores around their homes just so they could earn money to put toward their school project. The money helped to purchase the following:
In addition to the project money, the students also brought in 96 shoe boxes to support Operation Christmas Child.
The boxes were filled with toys and hygiene items for boys and girls all around the world. Each box will have a Gospel booklet added to it so children can learn about Jesus.
“My heart was so full the day we collected the project money and boxes. I literally was brought to tears when I saw the younger children sincerely praying over the boxes — praying that the children who receive them will ask Jesus to come into their hearts and that they will tell their mothers and fathers about Jesus, too. God will use the gifts to reach children and families all over the world,” Snodderly said.
