It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, especially in Regent Law’s Moot Court Board (MCB) office. From November 1st-15th the Moot Court Board organized a collection of shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse whose mission is to provide “spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world… with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ.”
Regardless of the fact that many Hampton Roads churches hosted shoebox collections of their own, members of the Regent Law family felt impressed to be a part of the MCB’s initiative. So, last Tuesday the Board piled the 233 shoeboxes into multiple cars and delivered them to the local collection center where they were informed that theirs was the largest donation of the year!
Each shoebox is designated to a boy or girl of a certain age and is filled with everything from stuffed animals to toothbrushes, and coloring books to clothes. Not only that, but once the shoeboxes are inspected at distribution centers across the country, “The Greatest Gift of All,” a Gospel story for children, is included in every box.
“Thanks to the generosity of the Regent Law community and the Lord's blessing over this project, more children will be receiving the joy of Christmas and the hope that comes from salvation in our Lord, Jesus Christ,” commented MCB Chairman, Linh Flores.
We at Regent Law are very proud of the Moot Court Board and each person who donated in the hopes of changing the world one child at a time.
