It has been a JOY for us at Crown of Life Christian Academy to partner with Samaritan’s Purse in Operation Christmas Child!
Our elementary students and their families have been generously gathering items for their boxes over the past month. And today, we packed and personalized 35 boxes! Our students added pictures and information about themselves to send to children across the world. Then they added their own individual gift, followed by a fun assembly line to add all of the donated items. Pencils, wash cloths, flash lights, water bottles, jump robes, coloring books, and crayons were some of the many items included in our boxes.
It has been a beautiful sight to see our students caring for one another and genuinely excited about giving gifts to other children for Christmas. They helped each other fill out their cards, fold up their boxes, and figure out the puzzle of how to make everything fit into one shoebox. The students served each other well and the love of Christ shown through their generous spirits. It is an honor for us to bring joy to children this Christmas and to also teach our young boys and girls how to care for others well.
Today we ask that you will PRAY with us for the children who will receive our boxes and that God will be glorified throughout this Christmas season.
