Random Act of Christmas Kindness: Day 3
Prepare and send care package to MN Soldiers in Afghanistan
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness,goodness, faithfulness,
We have been including our neighbor boys in our missions when we are able! Today, the boys all colored Christmas pictures and wrote messages to our troops in Afghanistan. One of the neighbor boys asked, “Are you just doing this for fun??”
We were able to have a great conversation about what it would be like to be so far away from your families and that by being kind to others we are sharing God’s love with others. One little boy wrote the sweetest note that nearly brought tears to my eyes. The heart of a child……..amazing!
We were able to find a MN unit to support in Afghanistan through the Any Soldier website. We read about the unit and saw pictures of them as well. With children it is also good to make things concrete. The soldiers stated the water tasted bad and they would like some drink mix. So we mailed them boxes of drink mix and about 100 granola bars along with our pictures and letters.
Coloring for the troops!
Package is ready to be mailed on Monday!
We hope that you find God’s love and blessings in your life this holiday season and throughout the new year!
