Making A Mountain
Just a week from tomorrow night we'll be starting the box packing for our Operation Christmas Child packing party.
We were blessed to get our boxes this week and I was hoping to have more folded by now Tonight was our third night of box folding.
We assembled 300 the first night at youth group, 600 the second night with just 5 incredibly hard-working volunteers, and 800 tonight for a grand total of 1700 boxes.
The happy/sad thing is that at last year' packing party we were packing 1000 boxes in 20 minutes when we got rolling. Those 1700 boxes won't last long.
We have just 17,300 left to assemble and I think this will take more than the 8 volunteers we had tonight.
It takes a team to make a mountain.
