These are my personal Operation Christmas Child pictures from Ecuador, taken when I traveled with Samaritan’s Purse to distribute the Christmas shoeboxes there last February. From my pictures, it will be easy for you to see why filling the shoeboxes is going to be completely different for me this year.
:: Plan on filling a box and having it ready by this year’s National Collection Week.
“Our outreach to these children and their families may begin with a shoe box gift, but our ultimate goal is to open doors to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and to open hearts to receive Him as Lord and Savior.” ~Franklin Graham, CEO and President of the international Christian relief organization Samaritan’s Purse
I wrote several posts and devotionals during my journey of taking the mission trip and then sorting through my experiences once I got home. Several titles are listed below. You can find them all HERE.
