Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse collects shoebox gifts—filled with school supplies, hygiene items, and fun toys—and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. For many of these children, this is the first gift they have received. Delivered into the hands of children through local churches and ministries, every shoebox gift is an opportunity to share about Jesus Christ.
After receiving shoebox gifts, many children are invited back to participate in our discipleship program, The Greatest Journey. Through this 12-lesson course, which includes Bible stories and Scripture memorization, they learn how to follow Christ in their daily lives as they share Him with friends and family. Your family or homeschool co-op can pack shoebox gifts that bring good news and great joy to children all over the world. Visit our booth at Great Homeschool Conventions to learn more.
Operation Christmas Child is excited to partner with Great Home School Conventions this year, where we will introduce you to a new resource, designed for 5‑ to 9‑year‑old children, our GREATEST JOURNEY app is absolutely free and there are no in‑app purchases or advertisements. All the lessons in our GREATEST JOURNEY app are based on The Greatest Journey international discipleship course created for children who receive Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
