David and I teach the 5th and 6th grade Sunday School class at our church, along with 2 other couples.
We chose Operation Christmas Child as our mission project this year. We all met last night to fill wrapped shoe boxes with donated items to be shipped around the world to children who might not get to celebrate Christmas otherwise.
The church members were so generous with their donations. We filled 25 boxes and still have plenty of leftovers to take to Turning Point (our local domestic violence shelter) and the Cheer Fund (the fire stations' toy drive).

Organizing our donations
We had lots of great help!
This was such a great project and the kids did such a wonderful job securing donations and wrapping the boxes. We're so proud of them!
