Operation Christmas Child

We tried something new with our boys this year.  We wanted to show them first hand how good it feels it give to others.  We decided to make two shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.  We took the boys shopping and let them pick out (and redirected them several times!) items for our boxes.  They picked out books, crayons, balls, candy and personal items.  We plan to donate online so we can track our boxes.  The boys wrote a letter to these boys telling them about themselves and what they like.  We talked about how we should pray for the two boys that will receive our boxes.  I know it made an impact because they remembered to pray for our new "friends" tonight.
