Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child seasonal work has ruined me for the ordinary. Which is a great thing. I felt like I was on a mission trip or at camp for three weeks in my hometown. I LOVED it with everything in me. That is probably why I am completely exhausted. 🙂

The work was hard but that never bothered me. I like hard work. I like knowing that I could be a part of a team that works together on a project that is as simple as packing shoe boxes but will impact a child’s life in a big way.

I will never forget this season of my life. If I seem a bit distant and reflective in the coming weeks, please forgive me.  I have a lot to process and in the meantime a full time job to find as well. I do hope that my schedule will get back to some sense of normal soon. I can’t wait to share the stories I have, with you all!

Here are a few pictures of my team (Spicy Green) from our last night together at OCC.
