This past Christmas we participated in Operation Christmas Child as we have in years past, it's a wonderful program and we enjoy doing it. (To read more about that program click here.)As we pack the shoe boxes we always wonder where they go, and this year Samaritan Purse offered tracking for the shoe boxes, which was very cool, as I blogged about here. Today a letter from a recipient arrived in our mail box from a 10 year old girl in Mali! The kids and I are thrilled!!! What a beautiful young lady! We never expect to hear from the recipients, we just put a letter to the child in the shoebox to tell a little about us and sometimes they write back, it's a beautiful thing, life changing!
