Description

Come hear the story of a life that was changed by an Operation Christmas Child shoebox, and connect with opportunities to share this gift with others this fall.

Elana Hagemeier was 8 years old when her sister and she were moved from an abusive, poverty-stricken home into an orphanage in the former Soviet Union. At a time when she was feeling unloved, she was given an OCC shoebox gift - the first gift she had ever received. Within the box was a booklet that assured her that God loved her. She began to pray, hopeful for a family for the two of them. That prayer was answered in 2004 through a loving American family. Join us to hear Elena describe the hope for a new life that began with the receipt of a shoebox gift.
