Operation Christmas Child

Give the gift of a blessing to a needy child in Moldova and Romania this Christmas! Operation Christmas Child has been carried out every Christmas since 1990. We have been sending parcels through Patmos, a Finnish mission organisation.

3. Fill the box with gifts. Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.

4. Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.

5. Tie the box up with a string or rubber band. This will help the inspection process in our warehouse. 

6. Please return the parcels to the IEC church office at Tähtitorninkatu 18 A (Mon-Thu 09:00-17:00 hrs)

OR give them to the pastor on Sunday after the IEC church service. 

 

DEADLINE: Monday, 8th of November

 

In case you would like to donate money to this campaign instead: 

Lets go and HELP!

We are making a team to go to help in their warehouse making sure all the parcels has enough gifts, and organise and pack the trucks. We could do with 20 people / night.

This is a great fun way do practically minister and enjoy some food also in the break.
