Shoebox Gifts Bring Joy to Namibia
20 September 2023
For most of us the story of Creation is familiar, but for remote communities in Mongolia it’s the first time they’re hearing it.
After shoebox gifts are dropped off at hundreds of locations around Australia and New Zealand each year in October, trucks transport the precious cargo to different processing centres.
Processing centres around Australia and New Zealand are secured so that thousands of volunteers can inspect the shoebox gifts and prepare them for international shipment.
Ships and trucks transport millions of shoeboxes to the countries where they will be distributed. Once there, local churches use many modes of transportation to get them to children in need as a tangible expression of God’s love.
Your $12.50 donation to Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, helps us train and equip local churches to use our Ministry Partner Guide. This resource shows churches how to share the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ in a child-friendly way.
Your donation also provides The Greatest Gift Gospel Booklets, which are written in the children’s language and distributed along with shoebox gifts.
