Christmas Shoeboxes in Trinidad

I am sure that most people have heard of Operation Christmas Child through Samaritans Purse.  If you haven't packed a shoebox this year you may have done so in years past.

My daughter had the amazing opportunity to go to Trinidad with the BGEA and one of the things they were able to do while there was hand out the shoeboxes.

So I thought I would share a few of her pictures as we remember the true reason of the season.

I am joining Cindy at "My Romantic Home" for Show and Tell Friday

  3. How wonderful that your daughter had the opportunity to go to Trinidad, and also be involved in Operation Christmas Child. Our church packs boxes every year for OCC. It's so nice to see some of the children that receive OCC boxes. Thank you for sharing the photos.

  4. I'm glad I could share the photos. It was such a wonderful experience for her and exciting to be able to have the opportunity to actually hand out the shoeboxes after packing them for so many years :)

  5. We did our fist shoe box this year! Thanks for sharing with us!
