A few friends share their experience working at the Operation Christmas Child Distribution Center in Atlanta, Ga. Dec. 1-3, 2014…

“OCC is a mission that all ages can participate; from the youngest Mission Friend child to senior adults. The blessing a child in a third world country receives is doubled because those who donate are blessed too. The greatest blessing is knowing the gospel of Jesus is going to these children.”

— Joetta Tillman, First Baptist Church of Houston, MS

“What a mighty God we serve. The bus was full of laughter, fun and wonderful fellowship. The work was so fulfilling and I pray my name is a permanent fixture on their list of volunteers.”

— Fay Griffin, Rocky Branch Baptist Church in Calhoun County, MS

“I wish everyone could pack boxes at an OCC Distribution Center at least once. There are many things you encounter in the experience that touch you deeply. It is a way to be a blessing to others, but God gives back to us a larger blessing than we give out.”

— Kim Hood, First Baptist Church of Houston, MS

My favorite part of the OCC is when we stop and pray for the child who will receive the box we have in our hands. It is hard work bu it is very rewarding.”

— Teresa S. Gholston, Friendship Baptist Church in Baldwin
