Message from Operation Christmas Child

Thank you for taking part in Operation Christmas Child

Thank you for your involvement in Operation Christmas Child in 2013. Globally we sent almost 10 million shoeboxes to children living in some of the toughest parts of the world, showing them that God loves them and they have not been forgotten. 

A simple shoebox gift has the power to bring change to a community.  We received this story from Kosova following a recent distribution there.

“Someone should write a book about the impact of OCC in Kosova!’ remarked Pastor Artur, who leads one of Pristina’s largest churches.

“The gifts help in building relationships with the authorities – even up to the country’s President. The American Ambassador to Kosova joined our in-country Co-ordinator and Pastor Artur for some distributions in December – in one day they distributed in Serbian, Albanian and Roma communities. Showing love equally to all communities is a powerful testimony here.

“And please tell people that in the rural areas of Kosova, people so much appreciate receiving the shoebox gifts. They are so needed and are a real blessing,” added Pastor Artur.

Will you partner with us again and inspire your friends, family, school, church or group members to take part in Operation Christmas Child in 2014? Visit our websitefor your FREE resources, so that more children and communities around the world may know the hope and Good News of Jesus Christ through the power of a simple gift.

Yours sincerely,

The Operation Christmas Child Team
