Operation Christmas Child

     This is the last week for Operation Christmas Child, a ministry near and dear to my heart! Every year since I was a little girl I have filled out a shoe box to give to a child. I continued that tradition with my oldest. Praise the Lord now my church participates as well! 

     Since we have 3 kids I like to fill 3 boxes one from each child. It's a "small" way to give to others during the Christmas season. This year we are FINALLY including letters to the child. I have always wanted to do that, I heard it's one of their favorite things to receive.

     If you don't know what Operation Christmas Child is, you fill a shoe box with items for children all over the world. Lots of these kids have never received a present. which is so neat to provide a child with their first gift and to share God's love. 

     If you would like to fill a shoe box but don't know how, you can click on the link and it will take you to the website with instructions. Instructions to fill a shoe box . If your church doesn't participate and you are looking for a drop off location you can click here for drop off locations. Not sure what to pack? Here is a great blog from, Faithful Provisions on 101 things to pack into a shoe box. Don't have time to fill a shoe box but would love to help out? No problem! Click here for instructions to build a box from your computer!

Our Shoe boxes this year.

I hope you will participate in this wonderful ministry! 

If you pack shoe boxes, what do you typically pack? Is there an item you always pack? What item do you think is the most important? I would love to hear from you!

For His glory,
