Today, nearly 5,000 Operation Christmas Child drop-off locations open across the United States for National Collection Week! It's time to bring in your prayerfully packed gift-filled shoeboxes. Each box is a tangible expression of God's love and an opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with a child, their family, and community!
Elizabeth lives with her single mom in a remote village in Kenya. When her parents separated, she became sad and withdrawn. A friend invited her to a festive outreach event where she received a gift-filled shoebox. Elizabeth was overjoyed with the gifts and felt God's love. She then attended The Greatest Journey where she learned how Jesus gave His life for her. The Gospel message she heard was so powerful that Elizabeth gave her life to Christ and started regularly attending church. Soon, she invited her mom to come with her, and she also gave her life to the Lord! Now, mother and daughter are actively involved in their church and are no longer isolated from their community.
