Operation Christmas Child 2017
While Karla and I served our congregation at Lakeline Oaks Retirement community in Cedar Park, Texas, one of our dearest friends, Horace Edwards, brought Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan's Purse, to our attention. Our faith family, Karla and myself packed and shipped 86 boxes our first year and we continued to double and triple the number of gifts we packed year after year.
Since we moved to Georgia, that dear group of Christian warriors continued to pack and ship boxes. This year they filled 300 boxes with more than just toys, socks and toothbrushes. They filled them with their love.
By giving those who have nothing, we fulfill a command that Jesus gave to his disciples, "Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples."
During this Christmas season, show the world that you are filled with love for all.
