Operation Christmas Child #2

Hi everyone! I’m  so super excitied. We made the goal! The goal was 1,437 shoeboxes as you might have heard in the last few posts. Our actual number though was………….[drum roll]……1,601!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Yes, I know it is amazing. Here is the story.

We learned what we were supposed to do in the church. Each person was supposed to pack 26 boxes, which I did.We went down the main stairwell, got a box from the Sunday School Hallway. Ran in to a Sunday School room and put some labels on the boxes and then ran up a secret stairwell. There we ran in to the church, then in to Fellowship Hall. In Fellowship Hall we went to stations and filled up our boxes. We then took them to be checked, finally we took them to the counting area. It was so amazing. We were basically running like crazy cheetahs around our church. I commented that this might be the only time I would every be able to run through church. So then some of the confirmation kids loaded the boxes in to their parents cars. Then they took them to a collection center where they will ship them to Samaritan’s Purse. Time to start collecting for next year!

Mission Operation Christmas Child

Hi everyone! I’m about to leave for my church. “Why?” you ask. Well, I’m going with my mom to the pack shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child!

First off, I’d like to thank my family and friends for donating items to me. Every Sunday I’m coming in to my church with a a huge bag full of stuff. I drop them off at church before choir! I’d love to thank everyone who made or donated a shoebox this year. You really make a difference. If you didn’t donate this year, that is fine, you can donate next year. Or if you don’t want to donate you don’t have to, this is optional. When I come back I will post how many boxes we made. Our goal is 1,437 shoeboxes! Cross your fingers and toes, [don’t cross your eyes though.]  Let’s make this wish come true!

Thank you,

Mara
