Children Senior Citizens


Several years ago I volunteered for the first time at the Operation Christmas Child processing center. As I inspected some of the shoe box gifts, I noticed several didn’t have anything in them except hygiene items and school supplies. I was surprised and heartbroken that I didn’t find any toys in those shoe boxes. There was nothing for children to play with. At that moment, I decided to do something about it. When I returned home, I prayed about what to do. The Lord answered my prayer by giving me a pattern to make dolls. I went to work, and now more than five years later, I’ve made more than 500 dolls to be included in shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child and other missionary projects.

    While school supplies and hygiene items are needed, a little joy is needed to. It’s a balance of necessities and fun. Bless you for realizing this!
