Thank you again to everyone who contributed to the success of our participation in Operation Christmas Child this year. It is amazing to see how many people came forward to donate items, especially since we had such a short period of time to make everything come together. It was an all-girl crew packing the boxes last night, and we had a lot of fun. In previous years, some of the boxes have had more necessities than fun things. This year is the total reverse. Every box got the usual toiletries, but this year they are all overflowing in toys too! These boxes are going to bring such joy, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to children around the world.
Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.
