Honoring Our Missionaries During the Christmas Season

As the Christmas Season approaches, it is right and proper that the church recognize those individuals who serve the risen Christ on our behalf. Oroville Evangelical Free Church is blessed to have eleven missionaries/missionary families represent our congregation throughout the world as they share the Good News of the gospel. The Missions Committee has approved a special love gift for each of our supported missionaries and their families. However, it would be very nice for the missionaries to also hear from families in the church. Christmas can be a lonely time for many of our missionaries as they are away from family and friends. A short note of thankfulness for their Christian service can cheer the heart and warm the spirit! Consider taking time to communicate with our missionaries…Allow this to be a family experience as you involve your children in the communication.

Each missionary is listed below with name, email address, and mailing address if in the United States. It is often difficult for missionaries to receive regular mail and packages in remote locations and third world countries. Email messages are often the best means to communicate with missionaries outside the United States. The names of missionary children who remain in the home are provided in case you would like to include them in the message.

Let’s brighten up the hearts of our church-supported missionaries this Christmas Season!
