Operation Christmas Child

I think we are called to serve others.  I think serving brings a sense of joy that you can't get anywhere else.  It fills my heart to do something for someone else.  I want to pass that on to my girls.  

One way I do that is through Operation Christmas Child.




It doesn't take much to pack a shoebox that will show the love of Jesus to a little boy or girl in another country.  We love the process and every year each of the girls send one off.  


They fill them with things they need, like toothbrushes and soap and washcloths...




but also with fun things, like this one for a little girl...




And this one for a little boy...




And it's contagious, too.  Grandma joined us this year with one of her own and Great-Grandma dropped off two.




It's good to serve others.  We are called to serve others.  I'm so thankful my girls find joy in it.  I'm thankful they are not only willing, but happy to serve.
