Countdown to Christmas - Day 8

Bible Verse:
Matthew 7:10-11
"If a child asks his parents for a fish, will they give him a snake? Of course not! If the people, who are not perfect, know how to give good gifts to their children, wont' God, who is perfect, do a much better job of giving good gifts to His children when they ask him?"

Dear God, thank you for being such a kind and generous Father. Amen. 
Today's Activity:
What can your family do to help those in need during Christmas?

We have gone through ALL of the toys that they boys have collected since before being born... THAT WAS A JOB! Whew! We donated all that we could (that wasn't broken, messed up in some way, or maybe could be re-gifted) to King's Ranch and Hannah Homes. We are also going to bring a few gifts over to one of the local retirement homes. 

Our family also sponsors two children through Compassion, Dola and Princesse. They are sweet little girls and we love getting their letters. Dola lives in Bangladesh and loves to draw us pictures. Princesse lives in Rwanda and loves singing.

What will your family do this year to help others in need this Christmas? Do you sponsor any children through Compassion or other programs?
