Letter: More good news from Operation Christmas Child

Good news is news indeed! Operation Christmas Child has brought the good news of light, love, and eternal hope in Jesus to impoverished children throughout the world for nearly 30 years.

As Christmas approaches, the Chico-area Operation Christmas Child team rejoices in the abundant generosity, compassion, and selfless giving demonstrated throughout our local region in the form of 6,214 shoebox gifts. Due to the kindness of so many churches, civic organizations, families, and individual donors, 6,214 children will have brighter and merrier Christmas.

Thanks and gratitude to our participating churches, ministry partners, and volunteers in Chico, Gridley, Oroville, Paradise, Willows, Williams, and Yuba City-Marysville. Special thanks to Calvary Chapel Chico which once again served as our North Valley Collection Center.

“The power of a simple gift” is a defining statement of our purpose at Operation Christmas Child. We are ever grateful for the opportunity to personally impact the lives of children in need one at a time. Thanks and blessings to all who took the time to shop, pack, pray over, and send that simple gift. You have truly made a difference. Merry Christmas!

— John Mattera, Chico
