Operation Christmas Child project!

A few years ago, our Junior Church took on the Operation Christmas Child project. It's something that we look forward every year. We get donations of items and money for shipping from people in our church, then we get together and assemble the boxes. After we are finished we pray for the children that will be receiving these boxes. We pray that they will be a blessing to each child and that they will somehow come to know Jesus. (It has always been a dream of mine to one day get to go overseas and help deliver these boxes! It would probably tear me up seeing the children, but I would love to experience it!)
Parker enjoyed putting a box together for a boy.

Our group of workers with out finished products...
32 boxes this year!

We always order pizza and listen to Christmas music while making these boxes for the children. It's a fun evening and everyone enjoys helping out, even our kids!
