Each year, Samaritan’s Purse https://www.samaritanspurse.org partners with Christians to send Christmas gifts to impoverished children worldwide.

Shoeboxes are filled with dolls, stuffed animals, crayons, toy cars, and other delights.  Most importantly, they contain Gospel tracts.

“In remote, unreached regions like Liberia and all around the world, Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes are opening doors for the Name of Jesus to be proclaimed and new churches to be planted.

These simple gifts are answers to the prayers of our local partners…who are called to bring the Good News to their home countries.

Shoeboxes become tools in the hands of these faithful believers, creating inroads to communities…that otherwise might remain closed to Christianity [1].”

The week of November 16-23 Operation Christmas Child will be collecting shoeboxes packed by loving individuals, families, and churches across the United States.  Donations can, also, be made online.

Please, consider taking part in this laudable project.

But a certain Samaritan…when he saw him, he had compassion.  So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him” (Luke 10: 33-34).
