lots and lots of hard work

Special Note

     BJ Pettit is the coordinator for the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child project here at Evergreen Baptist Church.

     There is much more work year round than what is depicted in the slideshow below; but, it illustrates how the church members all work together to get this project done.

     There are 16 slides in the show.  Each slide advances at an interval of 5 seconds each.  (Photos were cropped to get the best possible view; thus, the different sizes.)


. . . it ends with a child receiving a box and a message of the  glorious gift of God's love for all of us . . .

and so we begin again the cycle of the Christmas Child box

to all the little children of the world -- we love you too
