It's a wonderful time of year to be active in women's ministry. Ministry has always been a passion for me. While I may not share it on our blog as much as I should I have always been active and support missions. Recently we met to discuss our upcoming Operation Christmas Child drop off spot. Our church works as the local support station. Packages our dropped off and we ship them to where they are to go next. Eventually children in need around the world will be presented with a Christmas present from Operation Christmas Child
This past Sunday our children's classes teamed up with adult classes and packed Operation Christmas Child boxes. Here are a few pictures of my Princess taking part.
With all the hard work going on of course we had to have a bit of a snack. I so wish that I had the chance to get a picture of the cake we tried The truth is that the cake was gone before I could even snap a pic. Everyone loved the yumminess of the pumpkin dump cake. It was smooth and spice with no better flavor than pumpkin. You may want to try this easy recipe and share with your friends, family or next gathering.
