Have I told you how much I love our church? Well, if I haven’t, I do!

Packing Day at Westside Chapel was a phenomenal success gathering our Operation Christmas Child team to pack shoeboxes – under a roof! With air-conditioning!

After we packed shoeboxes, some took a few moments to remember why we are doing this. It was a beautiful moment.
