Everlasting Smile Shoebox Ministry 2021

By Angela Rice, Short Term Mission Coordinator BMAA Missions

Many countries in Central America are still seeing very high COVID numbers, so this year, our shoeboxes will be more of a blessing than ever before. There are many fun things in each shoebox that children will enjoy. These boxes are packed with lots of love and many prayers are prayed over them. But the most important thing that we

can give any child is the opportunity to know Jesus. Our prayer is that, through the ministry of Everlasting Smiles, we will open doors for our missionaries to tell families about Jesus and that the Bible inside each box will bring them hope during this hard time.

       We are thankful that we now have four regional drop-off stations for your boxes. Local drop-off stations at churches listed on our website (bmamissions.org/christmas-shoeboxes) are still accepting boxes, but we have also added additional regional stations. Regional stations are going to serve as our Conway location does, to pack your shoeboxes and get them ready for shipping. They will deliver boxes to our Conway office ready for shipping. What a blessing! Here is a listing of the regional drop-off stations that you can utilize, as well as local ones.
