Missionary Valentine Box

Kids' World
An excerpt from Matthew's Missionary Valentine Box
By Frank Martin, Support Staff
July/August 2010

The day finally came when Faith arrived. After Faith had spent some time getting to know Matthew and his parents (Dave and Deb), Matthew showed Faith his box and then dumped out all the change. Believe it or not, that little boy had collected over $20!

There is a sequel to this story. Matthew did not do this just one time. He continues to collect money from those who visit his home, and when a missionary comes for a visit, he promptly gives them what he has collected since the last time a missionary had passed through.

My wife, Sharon, and I had the privilege of staying in Matthew’s home and receiving his offering for missions. His efforts show me that you don’t have to have a million dollars to have a part in God’s kingdom. Just use what you have, and let God take care of the rest!

Have an extra shoe box? You can create an offering box for missions, too.
