Saturday Snapshot: Operation Christmas Child

We had such a wonderful week with Operation Christmas Child as a  guest group!

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse. The mission is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.   The group met in the auditorium for worship and teaching. They spent time in prayer over the children and families that they would be reaching this next season.

One of the guests shared that his favorite part of giving a child a shoebox is when they first open it up. They are so grateful for each and every item. He shared that even getting a washcloth is something that the kids rejoice over. To see their eyes filled with hope and excitement is amazing! 

Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 146 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 150 countries and territories. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received. 

We thank all of the amazing staff and volunteers who work so hard to reach these kids all over the world.
