Back To The Basics

I've been struggling to figure out how to promote bonding on our Operation Christmas Child team.  With different people in attendance at each meeting it seems difficult to figure out how to work as a team.

When I told Leigh Fisher, my regional director, that all my team really wants to do is pack boxes, she suggested we do that at a meeting.

So last night we had an indoor picnic.  And we packed boxes.

Old school.

Not a huge assembly line with thousands of pre-assembled boxes and hundreds of volunteers to manage.

We packed regular shoe boxes wrapped with actual wrapping paper.   We chose items individually for the child who would receive the box.  We cut labels and taped them on.

And each of us took our boxes home to pray over them between now and National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child (November 18-25, 2013)

35 boxes.  35 children.  35 gospel opportunities.

Back to the basics.
