Operation Christmas Child

Be a part of helping over 8 million hurting children hear the gospel and experience the joy of Christmas this year!  These children represent more than 100 countries afflicted by war, poverty, disease and disaster. Since 1993, more than 100 million shoe box gifts have been collected for needy children around the wold. 

Every simple gift-filled shoe box is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship, transforming the lives of children and their families around the world through the Good News of Jesus!  Countless lives have been changed for eternity as the distribution teams have shared the gospel with the children and their families.  Local churches invite these young people to participate in Samaritan’s Purse’s follow-up discipleship program.
