About this campaign

Hello! I am Leila Bjornson from Assiniboia, SK. God has truly blessed me! This will be my 7th shoebox distribution which have previously taken me to the countries of Uruguay, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Senegal, and The Gambia. Each missions trip has impacted my life in a new and different way. I have been the Local Logistics Coordinator in my area for 24 years and have spent a few years working as a staff member in the Calgary OCC Warehouse. I am also serving as a Chaplain with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team. I am very passionate about the shoebox ministry. Every shoebox is a Gospel opportunity, and I love being a part of sharing the Gospel with children and adults. I also love being an encouragement to the National Team Leaders and Ministry Partners in other countries. My prayer is that God will minister to each one of us on the team. I look forward to meeting everyone and seeing what God is going to do in and through this team. God Bless you as you serve Him.

    Leila, It was a pleasure and a blessing to go to The Gambia last year with the group we had. I so wanted to return there this year, but am not able to. So the least I could do is help out a little bit. I pray that you and the group are blessed as you bless the children over there again. Say hi to Alex and Alex for me.
