A Trip To North Carolina

After packing up shoeboxes here in Maryland. Michael and I headed down toCharlotte to help out at the Operation Christmas Child processing center.

We received our training.

Lined up to be assigned a worksation.

We took the boxes and opened each and every one of them. 
 We found the money, inspected to make sure there
were not any liquids, army/fighting toys
 or chocolate in the boxes.  If the boxes were “lite” 
we had filler items to make sure the boxes were full. 
 The integrity of the box is kept at all times. 
Then they are taped, boxed and sent down to the shipping trucks. 

Franklin Graham came one day to share stories
and inspiration about this wonderful program. 

We helped process over 400,000 boxes during our time in NC.

It was an honor to serve the Lord in this way.
  We worked hard and pray that all the children that
receive the boxes enjoy the contents and are open to
receive the gospel message given to each child.
1 Peter 4:11 "If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen."

I think that is an awesome opportunity for you! I have thought about doing this as well. We have put boxes together to send for years from our church. God Bless and have a great weekend.
