We had a great time yesterday packing shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Amanda and I set aside 50 of our boxes to have our church help us pack them. We wanted those who contributed shipping funds to have part in the fun that is filling a shoe box.
The kids watched Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas during the church service and How to pack a shoe box with Bob and Larry. They seemed to really enjoy it and we discussed that sometimes we need to get people together to make a big impact, like Larry does in the movie. They were really excited to pack shoe boxes and my favorite part was hearing my friend’s daughter ask her mom if she could do one more before they left.
Here are some pictures and a short video of our time together.
