Operation Christmas Child 2019
As mentioned in other posts, my grandmother passed away this year. Before she passed, she asked that our family continue her work with Operation Christmas Child or the shoeboxes. Each year, she would put together about 20 boxes for children all over the world. She would gather things all year for the boxes. She would even make “mobiles” out of old Christmas cards to tell the story of Jesus. She absolutely loved giving to others especially this ministry. We would help her out and give her items for the boxes too. She throughly enjoyed it.
This year our family came together and with everyone buying different items like stuffed animals, socks, cars, play-doh and many other items. When everything was put into boxes, we had made 58 boxes. I think she would be proud. It was a true blessing to be able to do this in her memory. We have already started collecting for next year. I hope we can make even more boxes to continue her legacy.
