So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel:

‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.

~Zechariah 4:6~

We had a number of items turned in at church Sunday for Operation Christmas Child.  They have all been opened and grouped for shoeboxes.  Lots of love is going into the shoeboxes.  David and I are dedicated to/addicted to shopping, organizing, and packing for them.

I love to tell about shoeboxes and do “shoebox show and tell”.  Pray with me as I consider how to best spread the word about the shoebox ministry.
