well it was humbling.
i wasn't sure what to expect at ALL.
I went to a warehouse used by Operation Christmas Child
to volunteer to help ship SOME of the bazillion shoe boxes
It was hard work
it was cold
the other people volunteering were funny and happy
it was a memorable experience
Every hour the pastor would say a prayer for all the children the boxes would reach
to imagine that our hands were the lands ones that would touch the boxes before
it reached the children was amazing...
the boxes we checked were going to Mongolia.
I learned that there is such a need for boxes that every child that gets one will only receive one once their entire life...there are that many needy kids in the world! That was a humbling thought.
I worked with people who drove ALL the way from Arizona...and we were in Irvine California!!
all that way...amazing
I found a check in one box for $100
people have the amazing ability to give selflessly
