UMCOR Shoeboxes Ministry Needs
We are currently praying and considering other ways to help around the world this Christmas. We found that the planning and implementation of the UMCOR Shoeboxes are very different and not possible at this time as they require their own shipping boxes that we do not have.
And as you can see below the list is much more extensive about what is required and what is optional. If you have any ideas for what we can do to support others around the world please contact Pastor Jeremy email@example.com
Stay Tuned...for what is next!
