"It's good for me to do things out of my comfort zone. Helping at the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing Event has been a great way to meet and get to know my church family better. We are all working together for a wonderful cause. It makes me realize how blessed I am and as God's blessings on each of these children."
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse.
