Dad turned 60 this year. Dad wanted his birthday dinner at White Castle (yum!) but … we the family had other ideas. Everyone one Dad and Mom’s church and most of our family who was in town gathered at La Casita to celebrate. After dinner we went home to open gifts.
Operation Christmas Child is one of my all-time favorite things to do. I plan and shop all year long (with help!) for one night in November, just before Thanksgiving, when my whole church comes together to fill GO (Gospel Opportunity) boxes to send out through Samaritan’s Purse.
This year, with the help of many people (buying, filling, building boxes, setting up and cleaning after everything was done), we sent 200 GO boxes to Zambia!
One of my closest friends (and cousin!) was able to be in town with her family for this event, and her two-year-old was all about getting those boxes packed in the cartons to be sent to the Processing Center.
