If you’ve ever wondered what difference a simple shoebox gift could make, you would be greatly encouraged to hear the testimonies shared at the Operation Christmas Child event.
A pastor from Africa (left) shared the benefit of the shoe box ministry for his church as thousands of children from the surrounding villages came to receive a gift and hear about the love of Jesus.
Timur (right) was an orphan in Central Asia who received a shoe box gift. He recalled his joy over the simple gifts of toothpaste, pencils and a yo-yo. After being in an orphanage for 16 years, Timur was adopted by an American family and is now in seminary for ministry.
