Shoebox Christmas

This is National Collection Week for Samaritan's Purse's Operation Christmas Child.
We love shopping for our shoe box children each year. Selah shops for a girl her age and Gabe shops for a boy his age. This year it was especially neat, knowing that their little sister may be the recipient of a shoe box gift. 

We spend the week praying for OCC, and especially for the children that will receive the boxes we are preparing. 

Then, on Sunday, the children happily take their boxes to our church to be sent to a child who may not get any gifts all year except this box of goodies. 

I love that the kids can take part in being part of the greater good. This is such a neat and needed ministry!
