Operation Christmas Child

Women of Faith’s Christmas in July celebration continues as we proudly announce our new partnership with Samaritan’s Purse® and their Operation Christmas Child® project. It’s easy to see why Samaritan’s Purse is a great fit with Women of Faith; we share core values.


The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. They do this, in part, by distributing shoe boxes filled with gifts. As one church leader in Madagascar says, “Gifts come by plane, boat, car, camel, whatever it takes to bring the joy and Gospel message to hard to reach places.”


As part of our Christmas in July celebration, the Women of Faith office staff packed 100 shoe boxes for needy kids—and had a great time doing it! It’s not just about the box, though—each child will hear the gospel message when they receive their gift. This year, you can help Operation Christmas Child surpass 100 million shoe box gifts packed and distributed since 1998. Let’s reach 100 million children for Christ! Learn more about Operation Christmas Child here.


Operation Christmas Child is an outreach of Samaritan’s Purse. Franklin Graham, eldest son of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham, serves as President and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse. Under his leadership, Samaritan’s Purse has met the needs of poor, sick, and suffering people in more than 100 countries.

    I am in pretty bad shape right now! Just left my home state to flee to Maine after 8 years of being with my kids father. He hit me, used me, and cheated all the time. So I finally packed my babies up and went closer to family. I ended up in Maine though and family is in Mass but since my ex was the provider I ended up in low income housing and all we brought was the clothes on our backs and that was summer clothes. I feel like going back to him because my kids have nothing! I need help. For years I helped when I see people on line asking sincerely and now I need for my kids at least. They have no winter coats or winter boots or clothes. We have one mattress we all sleep on with 3 small blankets for all 4 of us. They dont have toys. It sucks so much watching my kids suffer but they always smile and pretend not mind when they see me stressing. The last 2 months when I recieved money assistance through the gonverment I buy them clothes and pay the bills but they are growing so fast and the season change is calling for warmer clothes now. I dont even no how Im going to make it for christmas! I found a part time job cleaning up vacant apartments with my apt manager so that is helping with the light bill and gas. Used clothing would help so much ! too little is enough in our case believe me! Thanks for looking!
    Kids are age 12 yr old girl, 5 yr old boy, and 4 yr old girl

    We love this ministry at our church. This year our coordinator is a military wife who received a shoebox as a child in the Ukraine! She has passion for the Lord and all His children! Thank you Women of Faith for supporting this fine work. My friend has crocheted over 1000 hats that pack easily. One day in heaven we will know the outcome of this wonderful gospel outreach.

  3. Oh I love this ministry!!!I love the concept.. sharing the love of Christ one shoebox at a time to children around the world. How exciting that you have partnered with this organization… more shoeboxes = more opportunities for the gospel to go forth!
