This year St Nick’s is again participating in this wonderful project, Operation Christmas Child. You can contact Christine 48298393 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to obtain pre-printed shoe boxes. There will be a celebration service on Sunday, 21st October, after which the boxes will start on their long journey to countries such as Fiji, Cambodia and Thailand.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian organisation whose mission is to provide spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1993, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet the needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine.
Operation Christmas Child is a unique project that takes gift-filled shoe boxes to children in need in over 150 countries around the world. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
All of Samaritan’s Purse’s projects, including Operation Christmas Child , are given and provided with “no strings attached” and without regard to the race, creed, gender, religion or ethnicity of the beneficiaries.
