Operation Christmas Child

My church is a regional collection center for shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. If you've never been involved with this before, make sure you do it next year! It's such a great ministry. Thousands of boxes came through our church during the past week, and they are all being shipped to Charlotte to be checked before going overseas. I don't know the final numbers, but over 7,000 boxes came through our doors this week! So many kids will be blessed with a box full of toys, candy, school supplies and the love of Jesus - what a great way to say Merry Christmas.

This is one of our family traditions. Usually we pack one box per child, but this year we just packed three. The older kids got to pick the sex and age of the child they would send a box to and picked out the stuff themselves (with a little guidance of course). It's a wonderful thing to do! It starts the Christmas season off right!
