    Girls in Action 

    The Girls in Action (GAs) have been busy learning about missionaries around the world and in our own country. To start the fall semester, the GAs collected gift cards to donate to North American missionaries through the Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) Christmas in August program. 

    The GAs were busy putting their faith into action through several other projects as well. We collected shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child and made care baskets for Syrian refugees. We also collected winter coats and made Christmas cards to give to Ukrainian and Russian orphans. The GAs helped with crafts and games at the UBC Preschool Birthday Party for Jesus. At the end of the party, the GAs performed a short play to tell the preschoolers the story of Jesus’ birth.
