Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with our Parish and our efforts to employ local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ. St. John’s has been involved with this ministry for over 10 years and has grown are giving to the children of the world from 50 boxes when we started to well over 300 last year. This is a great outreach ministry started by Dr. Billy Graham’s vision and the Samaritan’s Purse which we are proud to be a part off. Our hope is that you also will feel as we do in supporting children who have a lot as we do.
