Give some Christmas Joy to Children in Romania
Make a wish come true by packing a Christmas box for a child in Romania. In this poor country, many children lack even the most basic things they need for school, so these special gifts will be much appreciated! Please support this outreach project run by our Convocation missionary Rev. Dorothee Hahn and bring your filled and wrapped box to church before 14 December. You will find a list of what to pack plus wrapping instructions here.
