Operation Christmas Child Shoebox ministry brings the Gospel of Jesus Christ to millions of children throughout the world.
Operation Christmas Child ~ Why we do what we do!!!
Wherever possible, after the shoeboxes are distributed, “The Greatest Journey” is offered. This is 12 dynamic Bible lessons written in the child’s own language and presented by Samaritan’s Purse through the local church where the shoeboxes were handed out. Over 14 million children have enrolled in “The Greatest Journey”, with many of them boldly telling their family and friends about the Savior. Following is an account of one of those children who enrolled in this course. “In the African country of Malawi, a 12-year-0od boy named Yankho was asked to speak at his graduation from The Greatest Journey. He preached so powerfully that 200 men. Women and children in the audience prayed to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We want to raise up a generation of believers like Yankho, whose hearts are on fire and have a burden for sharing the Gospel with those who need it most.” It started with one shoebox in the hands of a 12 year old boy.
