Operation Christmas Child – Where did our shoeboxes go?

In 2013, 9,985,210 gift-filled shoeboxes were lovingly packed and provided to children around the world through Operation Christmas Child.  I first heard about this ministry in 1995 and have been participating in it ever since.  I always look forward to packing a shoebox for a young boy and girl.  My kids also help and we make it a family tradition each year.

Here are the four shoeboxes that we packed last year.
We packed for two boys and two girls.IMG_7079The kids dropping off our shoeboxes at church.IMG_7165 Our church had a goal to pack 500 shoeboxes…

Last month, we found out where our shoeboxes were delivered to.  Each shoebox had a unique barcode on the label.  We received an email with a tracking notice that told us the country where our shoebox gifts were received.  They were delivered to Panama and Mongolia!  =) Click the country name to learn more about the work of Operation Christmas Child there.
