It is never too early to teach children about serving and giving. Miranda Heyl, from Fort Worth is the 9 year old granddaughter of Edward and Sherrie Bohannon. Heyl is sewing  the edges of a doll blanket to pack in a shoebox. Miranda is busy packing shoeboxes to send to third world countries in November.

Miranda’s grandparents attend church at Fairview Alpha Baptist Church and are involved in Samaritan’s Purse  Operation Christmas Child. This ministry packs millions of shoeboxes each year to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. For many children this is their first gift to ever receive and the first time they have heard of God’s love. The shoeboxes are packed with school supplies, toiletries, toys, stuff animals, clothes, shoes, and a WOW item.
