Great way to stay close to God during the busyness of the holiday season: share who He is with others! If you've never heard of Operation Christmas Child its a ministry that delivers shoeboxes to kids around the globe packed with things like toys and hygiene products. Where do the shoeboxes come from? People just like you and me!! This is near and dear to my heart because I got to hand deliver shoeboxes once in Peru. Its wonderful to see the faces of the kids light up as many open the first gift they've ever gotten (these are very poor areas) but its even more exciting to see as they lean in to hear about the gospel. Every distribution comes with a translator and a full production to share the gospel with the kids and to tell them about the most important gift they will ever receive: being loved by Jesus. 
I could go on and on about how much I love the ministry and the way it reaches kids but I'll just leave this link right here for ya if you are interested in packing a box. What do I pack!??!
