Operation Christmas Child

It is Operation Christmas Child collection week!  The girls' AHG troop filled boxes (and my trunk) to overfull again this year.  We were able to drop them off earlier this week.  That is always so fun to do.

If you don't know about OCC and Samaritan's Purse, you can learn more here.  OCC is a really wonderful ministry specifically aimed at the the children of the world.  It is also fun for kids because they can, with a little guidance about what is best to send, choose items to send to a child like themselves.

Samaritan's Purse heads up many, many relief efforts during the year too, far beyond shoe boxes.  They are on the front lines of the refuge crisis--distributing backpacks full of supplies to those in need.  They work in medical missions, disaster relief (here and abroad), and share the love of Jesus in real, tangible ways.
