Operation Christmas Child

The girls from 3D Girls Club packed 16 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child the other night. I love this program because it's such a tangible way for children to give to other children.

They brought in all their items to pack in the boxes and were so excited to do this. We had spent the month talking about missions and what missionaries do. Last week we had a missionary speak to the girls and then this week they were able to do something "hands-on" to reach out to those less fortunate.

Everyone in our church seems to get into the spirit. Today was the day we had to turn in our boxes and it's always nice to think about blessing a child in this way.
