Operation Holly Jolly

E-mail Print PDF


Since we began our ministry at Rock Point, AZ at the Navajo Lutheran Mission, one of the important aspects of that ministry has been our Operation Holly Jolly. Many youth on the Navajo reservation at Rock Point don't live in a way you or I would recognize. Poverty in the area is incredible. One way we have tried to bring some joy to the community has been through our Operation Holly Jolly where we collect Christmas gifts for youth at the Navajo Lutheran Mission School and ship them out to Arizona and personally hand deliver the gifts to the youth at the Mission. The kids there are so thankful and really appreciate their gifts. I have gotten to deliver gifts 3 times (once with my wife Tracy and step-son Justin-when I proposed to Tracy incidently and once with my Dad and Justin). Lee and Laurie Laird delivered the gifts in 2007 and Marty and Marsha Grieser delivered the gifts this past Christmas-2009. In 2013 we did our first Easter Basket project.  It may change from year to year, but St. Paul has sent much love from the heartland to the children of Rock Point.  If you'd like more information on this project please feel free to contact me.
