Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child may not be a new thing to you, but if you've never heard of it please take a few minutes to watch this video.  

For the past few weeks, we have watched videos like this on Sunday morning during church.  I've not made it to the end of one without crying yet!   To see the faces of the children who receive these boxes puts Christmas in a whole new light.  We have participated in OCC for the past several years, and I'm telling you, there is nothing that compares to seeing the joy it brings to these children. 
This past Sunday we watched a video of a man who, with is daughter and wife, has packed over 8000 boxes.  That's not just 8000 children that will get a toy on Christmas, but it's 8000 children who hear the gospel of Christ and hopefully decided to give their hearts to the Lord.  What an opportunity!!!! 
So if your church has this ministry, there's still time!!!  Get involved!!!!  If they don't, then find a church that does!!!  You won't be sorry!!! 

Gracie and I went and got our items today for a boy and a girl, and tomorrow night during Mission Friends, Amy and I are going to show the kids what Christmas is really about. 

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15
