Samaritan's Purse seminar
Every year, Samaritan Purse organises regional seminars called nConnect for the volunteers who organise the distribution of "Operation Christmas Child" shoebox packages throughout the world. As I am part of the national team for Bosnia and Herzegovina, I attended the nConnect for the Balkans in Bulgaria last week. It was great to be able to connect with people who are also committed to this ministry from Serbia, Montenegro and Bulgaria and also get to know everyone from Bosnia a bit better.
In between sessions, there was of course time to relax and enjoy hanging out in the hotel pool and sauna :) Good times!
Below is the Bosnia team doing some planning in for the next
"season" which is coming up soon. Looking at where the "ministry
partners" who will be doing the distribution are and where else can we
go... Amongst other things we organise training for the partners involved in distributions, and do all the logistics for bringing in the three huge trucks of 30000 packages that will be distributed in December and January.
I love being part of this ministry which brings so much joy to so many children throughout the world. And working with a great team of people who are equally committed makes it easier to be involved.
