I am pleased to report that our 63 boxes from the August 16, 2016 packing session have successfully been shipped to their destinations. The 63 tracts that were included in each package should certainly help pick up the spirits of soldiers as the hot summer months come to an end.
The shipment weighed in at 725 pounds with a total cost of $2,947.13.
As of August 23, 2016 the Operation Soldier Care Ministry celebrates its’ 13th anniversary. In thirteen years we have adopted 1,228 troop members, shipped 9,156 boxes that equals 115,924 pounds or 57.96 tons. We have raised and spent $430,847 during this period. We have also included a total of 10,727 tracts/booklets and 21,708 homemade cards and letters.
Not only are these stats amazing but the impact that our OSC Ministry has had on the troops is also very amazing.
I give many thanks to all of the faithful hands from volunteers and supporters over the years who have helped make this happen. You are a blessing and I am filled with gratitude that you all have chosen to serve the men and women who serve our country.
God bless and Happy 13th Anniversary OSC!
