Operation Christmas Child June 10, 2009

when i was in college in melbourne, my church used to organise Operation Christmas Child at the end of the year. We could participate as individuals or in groups, where each would get a box to fill. We could fill it with necessities like toothbrushes, tooth paste, socks, a T-shirt, notebook, pencils etc. These boxes would then be sent off to different countries for the less privileged.

I could almost imagine the joy when these boxes are passed out. You can read stories about how these boxes transformed lives in remote parts of the world and spread joy to those who need them. Distributing blessings allow us to share a little of what God has given us, and we shouldn’t underestimate what this could do. Even brightening up a dark spot in people’s lives are worth the effort.

Maybe this year we could do something like that in church. rally the church together to pass these to a local community organisation. and it doesn’t need to happen only at Christmas. It could happen anytime of the year. I should discuss with the girls.
