A flurry of last minute activity before Operation Christmas Blessings

The last couple of weeks have been amazing!  There was a steady stream of Christmas gifts dropped off  by sponsors and special friends for Lloyd and Judy to take to their kids at Ninos.

Shortly before heading down for the big weekend, we received a huge blessing from the ladies of FCC Yuma, who have been VERY busy. There are 900 hats going down to our event for the kids in Porvenir. They are hand knitted or crocheted “stocking caps”..all hand made by ladies group at FCC. They are in all colors. These ladies are amazing!  Thank you Ladies Group!

On December 3, we had a team of about 30 or so teenagers and youth leaders at NPFCC inspecting, wrapping, taping and packing hundreds of shoeboxes for our big event. Kids worked fast! Many have been to Ninos and just love helping our mission. Three trailers are full and trucks will be too.
