samaritan's purse

The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.” For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done our utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. We are an effective means of reaching hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This, in turn, earns us a hearing for the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Again this year, Gwathmey Baptist Church will be supporting the Samaritan’s Purse “Operation Christmas Child” shoebox program. Our shoebox packing party is scheduled for November 13 and we need to ramp up our donations.  Currently, the focus is on school supplies.  Donations of small stuffed animals and toys (no war-related toys, no liquids) are always welcome.
