Merry Christmas!!!

Or, as we say here in Romania, Craciun Fericit!

I'll pick up on Sunday discussing the past week's events. I've heard through others that quite a few people are reading this. I'm thankful you're taking an interest, but I also want to invite you to comment so that I can keep in touch while we are here.

Find below a link to the first video made from the trip here. I hope you get a good idea of how much of an impact shoe box gifts have. Pay attention to the little girl at the end counting her pencils. Precious.

Until tomorrow, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas celebration with family and friends.


  1. Craciun Fericit, So!
    The children and I just watched this video - it was so wonderful!
    This year we have sent our own box to a house church in Ghana (which doesn't receive boxes from SP) and will probably not get the chance to see any footage of the children opening the first Christmas presents they've ever received - so this was a great way for us to talk about how the children probably reacted.
    We LOVE what you are doing and are really enjoying the updates. Thanks for taking the time to write them.
    Erin & the family

  2. Hey Erin,
    I'm glad to see these updates are a blessing. OCC has become an important part of our lives. I wish you could see the child who got your box, but God is in control. You may find out one day what an impact it had; you never know.
