SPIRIT LAKE MINISTRY CHRISTMAS OUTREACH PROJECT
This is a special outreach to Native American children through a program sponsored by the Spirit Lake Ministry Center in North Dakota (an approved United Methodist Volunteers in Mission destination).
Each year at St. Andrew we gather donations of age-appropriate toys, stuffed animals, school supplies, hygiene items, and winter hats and gloves, and arrange them into gift-filled boxes which are mailed before Christmas to the Spirit Lake Ministry Center in Sheyenne, ND.
For Christmas 2020, St. Andrew prepared and shipped 8 gift-filled Christmas boxes! After reaching the Spirit Lake Ministry Center, these gift-filled boxes will be distributed as part of the Center’s 2020 Christmas outreach program reaching Native American children in need living on reservations in SD, ND, and Minnesota. In a recent email, Missionaries Rev. Mike and Libby Flowers expressed gratitude for the Christmas gifts sent to the Spirit Lake Ministry Center by St. Andrew: “It had been an extraordinary year. We are thankful for all the boxes we receive this year and thank you so very much for your prayers and support.”
Thank you and God bless you to everyone at St. Andrew who donated items for this project! Please continue to pray for the children who will receive these gifts and their families!
