Today, I received a report from Operation Christmas Child, a Christian ministry by Samaritan’s Purse.
In the report, I saw photos of children who held shoe boxes in their hands and had a big smile on their faces.
I pray that they may find Jesus as the Biggest Gift of all.
You can know more about this ministry at http://www.samaritanspurse.org/index.php/occ.
Watch the videos, look at the photos and read the articles.
Let us spread the Good News to the world.
A very well-rated charity. Billy Graham’s son, Franklin, started this years ago. Good reference, Dicky
Thank you Jeanne.
Operation Christmas Child is most worthwhile and is well funded, as mentioned by Jeanne, above.
Volunteers sort and wrap packages determined by the childrens’ ages and needs. They may be advised in specifics of the destination country/environment.
Then it is a matter of filling your little shoeboxes with donations, wrapping and delivering to the persons collecting them.
Some very helpful materials are provided by the sponsoring agencies, along with complete instructions.
Thank you Ellie.
You’re welcome, Dicky!
Amen! I pray they do find Jesus as they Biggest Gift of all!
Thank you Terra.

We do Operation Christmas Child at our church each year. It is such a blessing – to those giving the shoe box and to those children that receive them. Thanks for this reminder, Dicky.
Thank you Drusilla.
Thank you for posting this. My daughter and I have done these shoe boxes almost every year of her life and it is one of our favorite traditional memories that we share. I’ve never seen videos of children actually opeing them though, so this was neat 🙂 God Bless!
Thank you Jessie.
My youngest son actually received a letter, one year, from a child who received his shoe box through Operation Christmas Child. They became pen pals and my son was able to send more gifts on his own (with my help, of course) throughout the years. It was such a blessing for my son to “meet” the child who received his shoe box of blessings!
Yes, it’s a blessing.
