3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
On July 21, at 3:30 PM, we will hear from a Full Circle speaker from Operation Christmas Child. Full Circle speakers are those who were recipients of shoeboxes as children, and how receiving the box has changed their lives.
Irina received a shoebox as a child. Come and listen to her story of God’s transformation!
Irina Creek was born into a broken family in the former Soviet Union. After being abandoned by addiction-riddled parents at the age of 4, Creek was moved into an orphanage. She remained hopeful of a reunion with her family, but the years passed and after frequent abuse, she was eventually moved to a new orphanage.
When Irina was 10 years old, a missionary group gave the orphanage children Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts. Through her gift, Creek felt unique for the first time and was touched by the message of God’s love. A year later, her prayer of adoption was answered by a family in South Carolina.
