Operation Christmas Child underway
Operation Christmas Child is a children’s outreach ministry of Samaritan’s Purse headed by Franklin Graham. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way with gift filled shoe boxes and to share the good news of Jesus Christ through The Greatest Journey enclosed in each shoe box, to boys and girls around the world. Our mission is to reach children with the Gospel, to establish them in their faith in Jesus Christ, and to equip them to pray for and share their faith with family and friends.
