Operation Christmas Child

Our church participates in the Samaritan's Purse annual Christmas project, Operation Christmas Child.

We participate in a BIG way.

Close-to-800-boxes-this-year BIG.

After packing some of our own boxes, the children and I had the distinct privilege of helping at our church today. Checking, filling, sorting.

Elisabeth and Noah worked hard.

Lily Kay and Daniel worked hard...for a little bit.

And then colored...
...and played with cars.

It was such a blessing to work on and pray over these boxes that will be delivered to needy children all around the world.

Experiences like today - when we're serving, but we end up being blessed - always make me think of this line from one of our favorite children's books, What Makes God Smile? (by Karen Hill):

"When we make God smile...

...we can't help but smile too!"


  1. We love participating in OCC each year, too!

  2. I love teaching children the importance of giving and serving :)
    Good job!
