The gift of giving

Children in Bonacca Key, Honduras will be blessed this Christmas thanks to First Baptist Christian School and the church.

The Bonacca Christmas box project collected 1,100 shoeboxes filled with gifts for school age children.

Organiser Janet Durksen is ecstatic how many individuals have been blessed through this gift of giving.

‘In a project this size, it is not possible for one person to do it alone, and there have been many people in the community who have helped.

‘Whether it was picking up shoe boxes from stores, or donating money, each role was necessary and contributed substantially to making this project come together,’ she said.

The children made a point of choosing items for the boxes, packing and wrapping the boxes, and for getting their schools involved.

‘Let us continue to pray that God would use these gifts to touch the lives of children and families this Christmas in Bonacca Key.’
