Well I had a pretty exciting weekend. I actually got to meet a young lady who received an Operation Christmas Child shoe box gift as a young child. When we pack these boxes we really do not realize the huge impact they have on a child and their families and whole communities. I also didn't realize how special it is to put a name and picture of you or your family in there. It makes your gift really tangible when the kids see who their gift is from. I really encourage you to pack a box this year. Not only is it fun but a great way to teach caring about hurting children to your own children.
