Stuffing and Shoe Boxes

This past weekend we celebrated Thanksgiving with the Scott's.  It was such a different family gathering.  Colby's cousin, Sarah, is very active in the ministry, Operation Christmas Child.  She also served over in the Philippines this past summer.  Once she came back this summer she was ready to hit the ground running with packaging and delivering shoe boxes full of goodies for her beloved Philippine babies.  So this Thanksgiving Sarah & her mama suggested we could pack boxes for OCC.

Meet Sarah & Mama Penny:

So after the Scott family did some serious grubbing... we started sorting toys, school supplies and hygiene products for the 25 shoe boxes we were going to pack.  Gosh, ya'll.  It was so sweet.  You would go into the living room and all the men where folding boxes and then you came into the kitchen and all the women (& twins) were sorting boy versus girl stuff.

Before we starting packing the boxes the entire Scott family came into the kitchen to pray over the toys, school supplies and hygiene products.

Then we started packing our boxes and each of us wrote a note to go in our boxes.

Ya'll.  I can't even.  We live in the land of pure abundance.  I am so encouraged by Sarah's desire to take all this abundance and give it away.. all the while, telling people that Jesus is strong and good and that he loves them.
