Operation Christmas Child

just a reminder for those of you who pack shoeboxes ... the time is soon approaching ... national collection week in canada is november 5-10 ... in the US it is november 12-19 ...

click here: samaritans purse ... to find the collection spot in your area and brighten the day of a child who normally doesn't get gifts ... this small act of kindness is such a huge blessing to the heart of the giver!

Thanks for the reminder... we haven't gotten our boxes at our church yet... so I need to remind them that it is time to get on board...

Hi, sweetie!

Sister keeps asking me to come by, so here I FINALLY am ;) We think of you often, and your husband, and Squeaks. How is your sister doing?

God bless you richly,

We have done this quite a few times and it is a blessing. It's so fun to see how much you can pack in a shoebox and imagine the joy of the child who gets that gift!

Deby ... that is great re the missionary family you guys are adopting ... :o) ... the shoeboxes are a one time event for whoever gets them - so they are quite special too, i think!
