Today was a day of much learning. The most valuable lessons were not learned in my classroom but rather in the halls of our school. For several weeks our student council has collected toys, clothes, crafts, soap, tooth brushes, combs and many other supplies. You were generous in your donations to Operation Christmas Child. I know that you participated so that a child in another country would have a Christmas gift. What I want you to know is how your little one was blessed today.
Our high school kids did an amazing job of organizing and leading today. All students, K-12, were organizing in to groups and moved through 3 stations, making cards, packing Christmas boxes and prayer groups. The older kids lead and helped the younger ones as they together they chose gifts for a child. They wrote letters and made cards for the child. Once the boxes were packed they sat down together and prayed for the child who would receive that gift. They prayed for both the physical and spiritual needs of the child who would get that box. These are the blessings of a K-12 Christian school. These powerful life changing lessons!
And the King will answer them, 'Truly I say to you, as you did it to the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.' Matthew 25:40
