OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since 1993 more than 178 million children in more than 150 countries around the world have received the love of Jesus through the gift of a shoebox.

Another program of Operation Christmas Child is The Greatest Journey which is a 12 lesson program that teaches children how to follow Christ and how to share Him with others. Since 2009 23.63 million children have enrolled.
