Operation Christmas Wii

Have you heard of Operation Christmas Child? If you have not, please click here to learn more about this amazing ministry.

The girls have filled two shoe boxes for this cause through their school, and then last night got to fill more at church. Needless to say, Operation Christmas Child has been on the brain.

When we got home from church last night, the girls wanted to play the Wii. Usually this would be unheard of on a school night, but since today is Veteran's Day (Thank you, Veterans and currently enlisted men and women who are fighting for our freedom!!) they were allowed to play a few (read "15") games. About halfway through the Wii marathon ...

Megan: You know what would be cool? Is if instead of toothbrushes and coloring books, we filled the shoeboxes with Wii's!

Me: Hmmm.

Amanda: That would be too overwhelming for them, Megan. Besides, they don't have enough outlets over there.

Yep. If only they had more outlets ... Our church has raised money for wells, so villages in Africa could have fresh water. I can't believe we missed the real need: Outlets for Wii consoles.
