Operation Christmas Child

Yesterday, I was reminded of Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child. Several years ago, all year-long, I collected items for shoe boxes. While in Dollar Tree, yesterday, I recognized that another shopper was buying for shoe boxes. It’s obvious when there are a dozen boxes of Crayons,  small toys, combs, socks, barefoot sandals, etc. I stopped to visit with the lady and compliment her for her endeavor. I told her Operation Christmas Child had been an all year project for me. Today I looked back at my earlier blog messages on the subject. (Since I left volunteer service with Wycliffe Bible Translators, [regrettably] I drifted away from the worthy project.)

Three 2011 messages on my previous blog site regarding Operation Christmas Child.

Four messages on this site:

Little things make me happy, Nov 13, 2012: “Yesterday, I delivered the fifteen shoe boxes to a nearby Operation Christmas Child collection center.  I’m preparing several more shoe boxes, and plan to work at the nearby collection center this next Saturday.”
