My sisters and nieces hosted their annual Operation Christmas Child Breakfast Fundraiser this past Sunday evening. Yes, because of scheduling conflicts, breakfast for dinner seemed best, and it worked out so well.
Anna and Mary purchase items for shoeboxes throughout the year, especially when items are on sale. After Valentine’s Day and Easter, they stock up on cuddly stuffed animals. At back to school time, they buy crayons, rulers, notebooks, pencils, etc, in quantity.
If you’ve considered doing shoeboxes, please consider it this year. It’s about five weeks until the National Shoebox Collection week. Samaritan’s Purse shows love and compassion to those in need, doing what they do In Jesus’ Name.
We’re grateful to have a family who values children, and the OCC fundraiser is a time to give to others.

Mid-afternoon, Abby, Betsy, and Tina came over to help Anna and Mary get ready. The girls all pitched in to transform the house into a Christmas whirlwind.
Betsy shared about what they typically put in the shoeboxes.
“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the
name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God
and the Father by him.”
