Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse that sends more than 8 million gift-filled shoe boxes to impoverished children around the world in order to show them the love of Jesus. The boxes get delivered by rick-shaw, motorcycle, canoe, tuk-tuk, bus, land rover, small aircraft and more. It's awesome!
My friend John and I went shopping to fill our boxes on Sunday and had a blast. I mean, who doesn't want to shop for new pencils, toys and socks? Who doesn't want to brighten some sweet kid's day? If you don't participate in this ministry already, I'd definitely encourage you to consider it next year. Check out www.samaritanspurse.org for more information. In the meantime, pray for all those boxes and all those kids. God uses the most simple of things to do amazing works.
