Did anyone really make it to the end? :)

It was the most wonderful day! We got home tired yet so very blessed and content.
Are you ready for some pictures?
Here are some children from our own little town; later I'll post some pictures from our trip out to Jesus Maria and the surrounding ranches to give boxes there.
While we were passing out the last of the boxes, I asked for a box count to see how we were doing.
Elijah said that we had 28 girl boxes left and only 6 boy boxes.
So we prayed, "Lord, please send us to some girls."
And He did! The next several houses were ALL girls! We even found a family of 5 sisters! :)
When the last box was handed out, even our young ones understood how it is truly more blessed to give than receive!
I just said good-bye to 3 of my "men" :) Daniel, Timothy and Elijah along with 9 or 10 others from our chruch are going to a youth preaching conference about 5 hours north of here. Daniel and another man will be preaching and there will be much food, fellowship, and games for all. Lord willing, they'll be home Wednesday afternoon. We appreciate prayer for this trip that the Lord will keep everyone safe and that it will be a time of rich spiritual blessing in the life of each young person who goes.
And I'm off to conquer what I can of my Christmas Vacation Project List! :)
I hope you all had a most blessed Christmas.
Thank you...thank you SO much for blessing these children here.
|Just one of these smiles makes it more than worth it...and we got to see a couple hundred of them :)|
And we now share some of them with you...
