Operation Christmas Child (part of Samaritan's Purse) annually engages over 9000 volunteers, many of whom are adults in life's second half. Over the last 23 years they have distributed a staggering number of shoebox gifts to children around the world---over 135 million!
This incredible ministry focuses on evangelism, discipleship and multiplication. The gift boxes are a "tangible expression of God's love through a gift that points them to the Greatest Gift - which is Jesus."
As a result of these God-ordained efforts, three million children enrolled this year in The Greatest Journey discipleship classes.
If you or your church are not already involved with this ministry, we highly encourage you to dive in! We've witnessed life transformation firsthand on both sides of these shoeboxes, from those passionately involved in giving of their time and other resources here in the US---to the smiling faces of children in the jungles of Guyana.
