I’ve been packing shoeboxes for years. I love that I am getting to give children, who likely never received a gift before, Christmas gift.
But it is so much more than just a little gift. They are getting to hear about how Jesus loves them and the gospel.
A shoebox reaches more than just the child it is given to. They take it home and share the gifts and the gospel message with their family and friends.
Operation Christians Child comes along missionaries on the group or church plants and gives them a tool to reach these children.
They stay there with the children and take them through a 6 week discipleship program. When they do leave they leave these children and their families in the hands of the local missionaires.
