1) Hi, everyone! Thanks for being awesome at filling shoeboxes on Sunday. Many of you went beyond the basics and I'm so proud of how you sacrificed. This week I am challenging EACH of you to search your house and/or ask your parents to help you get together enough supplies to fill another shoebox. We have 13 boxes left to meet our goal. I think we can do it!
I know money is definitely a reason to not fill a shoebox, but here's what I'm thinking. If you normally spend a dollar here and 50 cents there on snacks or other stuff for yourself, this week go without those extra luxaries and save about $10 to make one very needy child's Christmas amazing!!
If you've already filled a box or 3, try saving some cash to put in the boxes to help with shipping costs!
2) Memory Verse of the week (for the 2nd time!): JOHN 3:16-17
16"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him."
Write it down on a card and keep it in your planner, have a friend or parent quiz you, repeat it over and over and over. You can DO IT. It might be hard at first, but it gets easier. You'll be professional before you know it!
