WEBox 2017 update

“A BIG thank you to all those who sent shoeboxes and donated to the WEBox appeal!”

This is a comment on the WEBox facebook page, where there are also lots of lovely photos of the trip just before Christmas when well over 2000 shoeboxes full of gifts were distributed to children in Albania. (On that page you can also see these children singing ‘We Wish you a Merry Christmas)…


Each year we work with the Albanian Baptist Union, based on their churches’ awareness of local need, to take Christmas presents to children who might otherwise have very little.

Maki Mico, who co-ordinates the WEBox appeal, says “A big thank you to all of those churches and individuals who were part of the WEbox 2017 in making, sorting, packing, storing, transporting, fundraising and praying  for our shoeboxes and food parcels.  We will soon provide a video clip that you will be able to share with your people.  It was a great encouragement to see how God provided once again and what a blessing the boxes were to the children and families that received them.  A big thank you comes from the Baptist Union of Albania for remembering them and touching them with your generosity.  We look forward to see how God leads and provides in the coming year.”

This was the team’s final comment on facebook: “It has been an amazing trip, and an incredible experience. We have been so blessed by our time in Albania, and have had the privilege of blessing others. Praise God for keeping us safe and for a successful trip. As we flew over Albania we were given one more blessing of a beautiful sunset.”
