SAMARITAN’S PURSE/OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ. The organization serves the church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Churches all over the Twin Cities participate in the annual drive to muster thousands of shoe boxes for children overseas for whom a little means a lot. Along with this shoebox full of goodies comes an opportunity for them to participate in a Bible study where they hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and have a chance to accept the grace God has provided through His Son.
At the same time shoe boxes are assembled, processing centers open up in the Twin Cities for preparing the boxes for shipping.
