This is an attempt to keep all my friends posted on my 2010 travels related to Operation Christmas Child!

I am Sorina, born and raised in Romania, a girl who, once upon a time, received a shoe box. It was a wonderful gift that brought a smile on my face, in a world where Santa didn't bring much and God was not known. That shoe box had a scarf, hat, and gloves that I so badly needed. The shoe box is linked to the church where I received it, the church where I got baptized. Many years later, I learned that Operation Christmas Child had sent the box to me. Nowadays, I speak on behalf of OCC, telling people to pack a shoe box for a child in need, because each shoebox is a Gospel opportunity.

So, now we embark on logging the travels: past, present, and future.

First stop on my log- Chicago. Stay tuned next week for news and impressions of Narnia 3 and the Windy City.


  1. Sorina, I'm so excited you started this blog so we can follow all that God has planned for you. I know He will continue, as always, to use you in amazing ways for His glory. Praying for safe travels for you, my friend.

  2. I am looking forward to following your travels. I would really like to get you to come to our church some time. It was nice getting to see you in Charlotte this year. I am sorry we didn't get to chat much. Looking forward to hearing about your travels and how God is working.

  3. Hey, I'm excited too! This brings back good memories, when I first received a shoebox! God is great!

  4. Thank you all for the warm welcome! I'll try to post often, and feel free to share stories as well.

    @Kathy- I am looking forward to seeing what God has in store for you too- it is pretty amazing to see how the Lord has bestowed blessings upon your area.

    @Joel- Next year is wide open, so we'll talk.

    @Raluca- Look at us, shoe box kids grown up. See you soon!
