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!!!

Amazing!! Praise the Lord! I'm so happy we get to be a part of God's care for those in need. We ALl have need, but it's wonderful knowing that these kids receive gifts that can bring eternal life. Never under-estimate the power of a shoebox.... or 5,625 of them! Yea!!!!
