T minus 5 Months
Five months from right now I will be basking in the glow of God's goodness after another Operation Christmas Child packing party. Lord willing, by the evening of September 28, 2013, there will be another 21,000+ packed shoeboxes on a truck ready to be sent to give a gospel opportunity to needy kids around the world.
Today my husband and I loaded another carful of stuff into the storage container and within the next few days we have two pallets containing 6300 filler items being delivered.
Space is already getting tight in the container. We've tried to strategically use every inch, but we have more variety in different sizes of boxes than we had last year so it hasn't been as easy to keep it organized.
Right now we have only 2500 stuffed animals and we're praying for 19,500 more. Where will they go? Maybe God will bring them all in during the week before the packing party so we don't have to store them? Who knows--He always has good plans for us.
And so we rest on His promises and expect His provision and cherish your prayers....
While we wait.
