Operation Christmas Child



This year our family is participating in Operation Christmas Child. You pack a shoe box full of toys, school supplies, hygiene items, and other goodies. Then you drop it off at a participating location. The boxes are distributed to children in need ~ many of them who have never received any gifts before. This is a Canadian venture, but there is another worthy cause that helps needy children and can be sponsored by Canadian & Americans...


The African Children's Choir! We just saw them perform and it was AMAZING! There were 26 children performing and all of them had lost at least one parent to AIDS. They have been through things that children should not have to go through. We have sponsored them once and I think that we will become regular donators after this. What a worthy cause! So many lives changed ~ and some many young lives finding Jesus!

I encourage you to find a great place to send your money today. What causes do you currently sponsor?

We sponsor a little cutie through Compasison Canada. The kids love looking at "P"'s picture on the fridge and hearing about how and where he lives. I pray for him and his family.
