For many years, our family has been making shoe box gifts for Operation Christmas Child of Samaritan’s Purse International Relief. I knew Christian literature was included with our boxes, but did not think too much about the impact of these gifts until this year.
I read in Samaritan’s Purse’s literature about last year’s follow-up program. “More than 1.2 million children from 57 nations enrolled in the 10-lesson Bible study course… and over 430,000 have accepted Jesus into their hearts.”
I also read about an entire village in the Ukraine coming to Christ and starting a church because of the boxes their children received one year.
