Mattie Lynn was a part of the Houston Lake Baptist Church (HLBC) team which prepared 211 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes for the Samaritan's Purse Ministry. Many members of HLBC brought in shoeboxes stuffed with goodies for the kids. The team went through the boxes and made sure all items were as allowed and properly packed. Some of the boxes were so full, items had to be placed in other boxes! The team worked several hours and now all the boxes are ready to go to the children. On this years Moldova Mission, Mattie Lynn saw some of the shoeboxes which had made it to the little village of Anenii Noi. They were empty of course, since the gifts had been distributed to the village children. Great to know the children received the gifts and more importantly, information about Jesus!
