Samaritan`s Purse shoe boxes

I spent the past 2 days searching for items for "my 2 girls" as I have come to think & pray for them.Our church collects these shoeboxes filled with little treasures for children in war-torn countries,8 millon children in more than 100 countries will receive these gifts.They-Samaritan`s  purse- have hand delivered more than 69 millon shoe boxes to needy children around the world.I know that the children get these gifts as our pastor`s son,Jeffery,works directly with them & has brought back slides of these happy children.
This is the first year I have done this,but I know it is something I will continue to do.It just makes me feel so good to do it.If you want to send a shoebox of treasures,go to Samaritan`s Purse.

Our church gathers them all up so we don`t have to mail them ourselves ,it has to be done by Nov.21 to get them there on time.They tell me sometimes the children will write back to you if you send a picture with your address.phyllis

God bless you for filling those shoeboxes!!Our church does this every year and I love it because it takes the attention off of me and puts it onto others.
