A great item to pick up this time of year is a water bottle to add to your Operation Christmas Child shoebox. Not only is this a useful item for your recipient to have to transport and drink water from, but you can use it to pack other items in your box like hard candy, small toys, or a rolled up t-shirt. That’s a way to maximize space in that shoebox!! Check end of summer sales, dollar bins and lunchbox sections of stores during back to school sales for cheap deals. Also, please pray for the following recipient countries this month: Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, Trinidad and Tobago.
