Over 8 million shoe boxes were delivered to needy children all over the world, including some in the U.S., last year alone. The impact of a simple gift, with each shoe box containing the Gospel message and discipleship opportunities, is unfathomable. Operation Christmas Child is one ministry of Samaritan's Purse, an incredibly well run and God-grounded organization.
If you're filling an OCC shoe box this year, I would love to hear about your experience! Do you know of anyone who, as a child, received a shoe box? What was the shoe box's impact on his/her life?
What are some of your favorite items to put in a shoe box? Any tips for filling one and getting the most items in? Do you wrap your box?
For more information on how to pack an Operation Christmas Child shoebox, see the Samaritan's Purse OCC site.
