In October, Ben turned 15 and when contemplating what he wanted to do, he decided he wanted to spend an evening putt-putting and eating pizza with his pals. He then decided that in lieu of birthday gifts, he'd suggest that his friends bring a donation for an Operation Christmas Child box. Donations he received! Between the six fine fellows below, they managed to fill 4 boxes!
Ben is in orange. And yes, these guys are as fine and fun as they look!
On that beautiful autumn evening in October the boys enjoyed pizza and putt putt before returning home. And tomorrow we finally take the filled boxes to church where they will be gathered with many other boxes, prayed over, taken to a collection center where they will then be sent on their way to be received by children possibly on the other side of the world.
Hope for a Merry Christmas and a little bit of love is enclosed in each box.
