Operation Christmas Child
I try to avoid thinking about Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but there is one exception. For the past three years our family has taken part in Operation Christmas Child. We pack shoe boxes full of goodies and necessities and then they are shipped to kids that need them around the world. In order for the kids to receive them for Christmas though they have to be packed and shipped in November. So we gathered lots of supplies, candy, toys, etc. and made sure to include a special note to the children receiving each shoe box. This week happens to be the collection week and so Seth and I headed over to a local church today to drop off our boxes. We hope that our boxes can be a blessing to someone this Christmas season, and if you want to also participate there is still a litttle more time. You can find out all about how to help here.
