Calvary Chapel K-Falls had their first packing party!

We have been packing shoeboxes at Calvary Chapel for years here... and we are the drop off location in Klamath Falls, but this year we had a new goal. This year we collected items year round so that the children in the youth group and Sunday school could EACH pack a shoebox in a packing party. It was SUCH a blessing to see the joy on the children's faces. To watch them as they intently watched the videos about OCC. To hear their reactions.. and see their prayers.

Some of the things our kids said:
* Oh I wish I could be there to see them open the box!!
* Why can't we do TWO????

Even though trying to get everyone done in a short time meant we had to rush a bit... it was so fun to see the kids trying to figure out the RIGHT pencils or toys or clothes for the boxes. I was so blessed! And I know the children receiving the boxes will be so blessed too!

If you want to see a bit of the packing party, our youth pastor, Andy put together a video... check it out at
