Apex has been collecting Operation Christmas Child boxes for several years now. We set a goal each year, but this year's goal was bigger than ever. I will admit when Rob said our goal was 5200 this year...I doubted a bit on the inside. That was more than we'd ever collected and I just honestly wondered if it was possible. Um, can I tell you this is what just one half of the stage looked like this morning?! OVER 5200 boxes were collected...5625 to be exact!!! Who knew a bunch of shoeboxes could bring you to tears? Each of these boxes will be delivered to a child who will hear all about an amazing Savior who loves them more than they can imagine.

This is why we pack those boxes!!!
