Operation Christmas Child

Back in November we participated in Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child.

It has become a tradition that we fill shoeboxes each year. As our family grows, we hope to continue to make it a part of our holiday season.

I also had the amazing opportunity this year to volunteer with our chuch which was a local donation drop-off center. We received boxes, packaged them into larger crates, and prayed over them we sent over 1,500 shoeboxes to a larger processing center in Charlotte, NC. It was such a blessing!
This year we filled 2 boxes, 1 for a boy & 1 for a girl.

We placed tracking labels on each so we could find out their final destination.

Just 2 days before Christmas we received an e-mail that our boxes had arrived in Zimbabwe...how exciting!!!
Praying that this small gesture of love will touch children & families in Zimbabwe.
