I got a package in the mail today and it made me so excited I had to share. A few weeks ago I found out that I was picked to travel with Operation Christmas Child to help distribute Christmas Child boxes! When we started posting deals and “how to” posts last fall my hope and prayer was that a spot would open up. I’ve been giddy ever since finding out that it was really going to happen.
I leave January 31st to head to the poorest county in the Americas, with 80% of the country living under the poverty line and 54% living in abject (utterly hopeless) poverty. This will be my first ever trip to a third world country and I hope to share as many of the experiences that I can (hopefully technology will allow). I think I’m the most excited about getting to see these children as they open their shoe boxes and the pure joy that we’ve seen through past trips.
Where am I going?
I would love your thoughts and prayers for a safe trip. Haiti is not the most political or health stable country right now, so pray for all aspects of this trip to run smoothly and that the children receiving these boxes would see the love that went into packing them.
I can’t wait to share stories, pictures, videos and probably a few tears with you.
(Don’t worry over grocery deals, I’m already training folks to get us ready for this week!)
