On November 5, the YHSA Missions Club came and spoke to our group about Missions - what it is, why it's important and how to get involved! They gave us information on some great agencies such as Child Evagelism Fellowship and Global Aid Network. We hope to volunteer with the the Club in the future!
On November 19, we collected shoebox gifts to be sent to our missionary family in Mexico, the Lockwoods.
Our shoeboxes were sent off to the Lockwood family who in turn handed them out to children there in Mexico where they live and minister. They posted pictures on their website of many of the boxes being given, and I was able to locate almost all of our boxes in the pictures! What a neat way to see our giving in action.
