Samaritans’ Purse

submitted by Gloria Burrow on behalf of the six people who were privileged to go their year

Again this year, our day at the Kitchener warehouse checking and sealing up hundreds of Samaritans’ Purse Christmas boxes was well spent.  On November 26th, we arrived at about 9:30 a.m. and stayed until 4:00 p.m.  The operation there is very well organized and the warehouse and leadership were most accommodating with many people working together.  God is obviously honored, making the system run smoothly.  Training time, break times and lunchtime gave us a chance to sit down about every two hours.

We had a productive, interesting and enjoyable day!  It is an experience well worth anyone’s time and effort.  Each time we go to help out it amazes us that God has taken a simple idea such as a shoebox and made it into this huge world-wide ministry.  The feeling of being a small part of it is very heart-warming.

One thought on “Samaritans’ Purse

  1. The Gentile Rabbi says:

    What a wonderful way to use your time and boundless energy, Gloria.

    I'd love to hear more stories. Are there others who have packed shoeboxes or served in other ways, either locally or abroad?
