The Grade 8 students again sponsored our Operation Christmas Child giving program. The Middle School students each filled a shoebox with toys, books, and soaps to send to poor children all over the world. The younger students also filled a classroom box. The organization, called Samaritan’s Purse, provides over a million gift-filled boxes to children in over 150 countries. They also add to each box a book about Jesus, printed in the language of those who receive them. When we were done, we prayed for the children who will open these boxes on Christmas Day! How wonderful that we can be a part of this mission! We are remembering God’s perfect gift and sharing love and joy in this season of hope!
