Full Circle

1-2-3 Open 

Does this smile say "thank you " ?
It hardly seems possible that nearly eleven years have passed since my introduction to Operation Christmas Child. I had no idea then where this would lead me but I am so grateful for each step along the path that has come full circle… packing shoeboxes, distributing shoeboxes, and now receiving shoebox gifts in our village of Kimini.
Stay clean and healthy

We are so grateful for the OCC  team who spent two days with children in Kimini and Wangolo delighting children with a lively puppet show to teach  the connection between good hygiene and good health. And then the joy of receiving shoebox gifts.

The real gift , however, came in the form of a child focused presentation of the Gospel message inviting the children and young adults  to receive the Greatest Gift of All !

 Those interested will be participate in a twelve week course to learn more about Jesus.

 The rest of the story is yet to be written.
