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!

Carl and I are putting a couple of boxes together this year. Hopefully, next year we can have a "packing party."

I too would love to be able to hand out boxes. One of the countries they deliver boxes to is Panama, which is close to my heart.

I'm so glad you do this. Oh boy...would you be a mess with some of those little kids! They would tear your heart out and you might end up bringing a couple home! :) It looks like a fun night. I think it is good that you are including the children in putting these together. After all, giving is what Christmas is all about! Thanks so much for all of your hard work...all of you!!!

What a great way for the children to exprience the joy of giving! I just finished scheduling days for my students to help with the Salvation Army kettle collection this season. There is so much fulfillment to be had by helping others...looks like you guys did a great job!
