Operation Christmas Child is part of Samaritan's Purse under the leadership of Franklin Graham. People all over our country pack "shoeboxes" with gifts for children all over the world. Each child will receive a shoebox and booklets in their own language telling them the good news of Jesus Christ. These children are so needy and this is a tangible way we can help children all over the world from our own homes.
I can tell you from my experience in Nicaragua and Romania, these little children get excited about receiving things like toothbrushes, socks, little toys, etc. They don't have the vast array of material possessions as our children here in America do. They are so thankful.
I hope you will help your children/grandchildren pack several boxes this year. It is a wonderful way to teach your children to give to others.
Tuesday night Hubby and I went to a dinner meeting for OCC. Our area did so well last year that we are hoping to do at least 6,000 boxes this year! I pray that will be so!
Wednesday we were invited to a luncheon with all these delightful ladies! They are in one of our ladies' Bible Study Fellowship classes. We had a great lunch and certainly enjoyed our time with them!
Aren't these views of the White River just beautiful? Today we were invited to another Bible Study Fellowship's class luncheon. This is the view from the house of our host! I would probably never go inside if I lived there!!
We had another wonderful lunch! I haven't had to cook much this week after all the luncheons we've been to! No a bad deal, right?
Fall is very much in full force this week. The trees are turning colors and it has been in the 40's in the morning with the past couple of days only a high in the 50's! Brrrrrrrr ....a little early!
Must be the global warming!
