Operación Niño de la Navidad

Today we volunteered with Operación Niño de la Navidad.  For the past many years we have always participated in Operation Christmas Child in the states.  We have packed boxes, sorted boxes, collected and received boxes, and then even went to the processing center.  It always kicked off Christmas for us because the whole process occurs much earlier in the states.

Operación Niño de la Navidad has only been in Spain for 3 years so it is still in the baby stages.  What a great blessing it was to volunteer at such an intimate level.  Hannah and Alex and I probably helped process a couple hundred boxes and it didn't even look like we made a dent.  There were a few workers and other volunteers who spoke English which also helped.  Everyone found it cool that we had helped in the states where the operation is so much bigger.

Wondering if I have time in my schedule to go back again this week.
