Christmas Child Operation

This Christmas, You could make a difference in a child’s life.

Operation Christmas Child is a unique project of Samaritan’s Purse that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes.

It provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple but hands-on project that has the power to transform children’s lives.

In 2009, our teams in Australia and New Zealand delivered over 300,000 gift-filled shoe boxes to South East Asia and the South Pacific. Globally, Samaritan’s Purse distributed an estimated 8.5 million shoe boxes to children in 105 countries.

As each shoe box gift is delivered, it is treasured by the child that receives it, and is a lasting reminder that he or she is precious to God.- Operation Christmas Child

This year my church has participated in this special operation. I have participated in previous years and this year it’s no exception. Thinking about the happy smiles on the faces of  little ones receiving the gifts as i pack the shoebox.

i've made a Christmas card to go with the box too.

So i would like to encourage you to participate in this operation if you havent. Bless a little one this Christmas…so what are you waiting for, go pack a shoebox full of gifts and send it to the Samaritan’s Purse!

For instructions and gift ideas, read more on their website!  Be quick as the due date is drawing near!
