Tomorrow is the BIG PACKING DAY for Jordyn’s Love Project for Operation Christmas Child and we are so excited!! Before I share the full list and more pics of what God is doing, I wanted to make a few shout outs:
Thank you First Baptist Church in O’Fallon, IL for sending a big box of T-Shirts and notepads for this OCC Project!! They are an awesome addition and we appreciate your sweet hearts to help Jordyn out!
Another thank you to our friends who made donations in the last two days!! With that money, we were able to purchase 309 bars of soap and over 350 pencils!
And… yesterday we received a call from Young Smiles, a local dentist who asked us to come pick up their donation of toothbrushes. We were OVERWHELMED by their donation – 989 toothbrushes. What this means is that now every box can have two toothbrushes!! YAY God!!!
So, before we started packing the cars, I snapped a few pictures of everything God has provided through our friends, community, church, a local school, and generous organizations, both locally, and out of state. Isn’t this rad??
WOW. WOW. WOW!!!
