Samaritan's Purse

Sorry I took so long to write a blog entry. I'm just too busy. I have school, football, Italian lesson, friends, karate, church, helping girls in soccer practice and walking Scratch. I'm just way too busy.

All year long I have been saving up my Jesus money and I finally used it for Samaritan's Purse. I bought things that children who don't have anything need. And we put them in shoeboxes and wrapped them up.

We put things like toothpaste, toothbrush, toys like balls, Spiderman disc shooters, little stuffed animals (not as big as my dog), dolls, jump ropes and a few other things. Somethings were for girls and somethings were for boys (for sure the dolls were for girls.) I did two boxes for girls and two boxes for boys.

These were the things for the boys' boxes.

These were for the girls' boxes.

It was fun getting all the stuff with my money. We went to the 99¢ Store. Me and my gramma wrapped the shoe boxes in Christmas wrapping.

I put a note and a picture inside each of the boxes.

This was my note.

After we got it done, we took the shoe boxes to the Mail Boxes Etc. store. They were collecting them so they could mail them to Samaritan's Purse.

Mail Boxes Etc.

Last year I helped Ethiopia and Alaska. Here's a link to what I wrote then The Meaning of Christmas.

I really like Samaritan's Purse. I have a good friend that I have never seen before-Franklin Graham. He is very nice. Please send things to people who need them. Jesus will really like that.

Ho, Ho, Ho--Merry Christmas.

Hi Casey,
That's really nice that you are doing that. I'm sure those kids who receive your gift will be really blessed.

Look what the Psalms says...

Psa. 72:13 He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy he will save.

We'll pray that these kids are really touched by this and come to know the Savior..

Lots of love, Aunt Joyce

Ciao Casey,
sei veramente una persona speciale....con questo piccolo gesto darai una luce diversa al Natale di quei bambini piu sfortunati di noi.
Certe volte una piccola cosa come questa, agli occhi dei piu deboli e poveri รจ un vero miracolo.

Ti voglio bene.Valentina

Hi Casey,
I think you are going to make some boys and girls very happy this Christmas. That was really a very sweet and caring way to show that you care.

I hope that you have a very merry and happy Christmas and that Santa brings you the very thing that you most wish for.

Love from your friend,

Hi Cracker, I want to eat you..maybe I should put some cheese on top of you first. Crackers are good but cookies are better.

I hope you have a good Christmas, too. Love Casey

Ciao Valentina, Buon Natale e tanti auguri. Felis Navidad, Joyeux Noel, Merry Christmas.
Da Casey

Hi Casey,
What a special young man you are. Thinking of other children, and their need of Jesus.
Your boxes will make them happy, especially at Christmas time.
Jesus loves you, and you are loving back those who need Him. You are special to me.
Love you,

Casey, you are such a delightful boy. I loved your pictures. I think of you often. Love you, though I can't communicate with you often.
