Operation Christmas Child Planning

Some how, some way, I was put in charge of our church doing Operation Christmas Child. And my Back to school drive supplies that I collected for Haiti were volunteered for the shoe boxes.

All by my wonderful mother-in-law (she is most of the time - just not when she puts me in charge of things) I am trying to avoid KWCC as much as I possible can and still keep my marriage in tact and being in charge of a project makes that VERY hard!

Ok, back to the project - our kick - off party is this Sunday night and I am in charge of coming up with what needs to go on. Do you know that all the information I am finding is about having PACKING parties - not a kick-off? So that means I am planning this thing form scratch - and I DON"T DO THAT! I have ideas, and I know what needs to go on but am not sure I have enough material to keep people busy for one and half hours!

The more I am getting into this, the more excited I am about helping kids in other countries. I was never against the mission - just the way that we came about me being put in charge. I have decide that my daycare kids will be filling 2 boxes - one boy, one girl 5-9 years old. I really hope that they get into it and find it exciting that they will be helping other kids just like them!

I hope that I can pull this off and that we can touch the lives of some little kids (hopefully in Haiti!)

  1. I'm so excited about the boxes going to Haiti this year! You will do great with your kick-off party. We are going to start promoting it on sunday too!
    Good job- I'm proud of you! Being in charge is a good thing because then you don't have to answer to anyone except yourself (and God of course)
    Love you
