It's that time of the year again...Operation Christmas Child time! It's more than a shoebox filled with toys, every shoebox gift is an excellent resource for evangelism and discipleship which leads to the multiplication of new believers and churches around the world.
Many families pack a shoebox every year and make it a family ministry project. Anyone can pack one and if you need ideas, see this link: How to pack a shoebox
There are a few changes this year. Shipping cost is now $9.00. This fee provides for shipping costs but also the evangelistic material placed in the boxes in the country's native language. Also, due to custom regulations, no toothpaste or candy should be packed in the boxes.
