Operation Christmas Child

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations”                          Matthew 28:19a.

Each year millions of boys and girls around the world are introduced to the eternal hope of the Gospel through Operation Christmas Child.

Samaritan’s  Purse has developed an exciting, 12 lesson Bible study for children who receive shoebox gifts called The Greatest Journey. The colorfully illustrated lessons, written in the child’s own language, are presented by trained local teachers who help boys and girls learn what it means to follow Christ and share their faith with others! Each child that graduates also receives a New Testament of their very own.

Jesus challenged His disciples to reach the nations with the Gospel. Through The Greatest Journey, lives are being changed for eternity and new churches are springing up in communities across the globe. Will you help make disciple of all nations?
