Operation Christmas Child is an awesome ministry that we've participated in for years. It's fun, easy, and it makes an impact on our whole family while changing the life of a child somewhere on this planet.
Please, please take a couple of minutes to watch this video. (Make sure to turn off my music player at the bottom of the left sidebar, so you can hear the video.)
A Gift for Katje by Candace Fleming is an excellent book to read as your family puts together your box(es). Not necessary, but a great addition to the whole experience. :)
The deadline for dropping off boxes is Monday, Nov. 22nd. You can find out the location of the collection site nearest you and learn how to pack your box by visiting Samaritan's Purse. (And this year you'll be able to track your box and see where it goes...very cool!)
I pray that you'll feel moved to participate and change the life of a child this Christmas!
Blessings to you,
