Operation Christmas Child
Most of the time we use this blog to just share pictures of what we are doing as a family. But, today I want to share with you something that our church family has done:
I can not tell you how excited I was for the girls and I to deliever 51 shoes boxes yesterday from Ben Avon Baptist Church.
Now, for some of you who are from larger churches this may not seem like a big number to you, but God did a great thing this year at Ben Avon.
Last year they collected 12 boxes. We set a goal this year to double that number- 25 boxes, and God doubled our goal and there are about five or so boxes coming on Sunday. Isn't it great to see God's people respond to His work.
Every year, I am overwhelmed and amazed at the fact that God already knows the indiviual child that will receive each one of the boxes. Not that a child will receive one of the boxes - He know the child's name who will receive Samuel's box. What a wonderful God we serve!!!
