OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD


Sorry it's been so long since we've updated. So much going on this Christmas Season!--Good things though. Friday, we took a team from church to Boone, NC to work in the Operation Christmas Child warehouse to help go through and package shoeboxes. What an experience. They had already processed 620,000 boxes which was already a record for Boone! The boxes that we packed that day were going to an African country called Benin. It was surreal knowing that these boxes were going to children who had never seen most of these toys AND they were going to be able to hear the Gospel. I definately want to do this again..... and maybe just maybe be on a delivery team one day. If I don't update before Christmas I hope you all have a wonderful, joy-filled Christmas!
