5 kids, 101 gifts

WS Youth Operation Christmas Child

WordServe Youth and their Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.

WordServe Youth may be a small group right now, but they are making a huge impact! Instead of focusing on what they wanted for Christmas, these youth focused on what they could give. Together, five middle- and high-schoolers collected a total of 101 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes for Samaritan’s Purse. Emily Motley collected the most boxes and won a grand prize of an iTunes gift card and a $200.00 scholarship toward a summer mission trip. The shoeboxes were packed full of school supplies, toys, clothing, candy, and other gifts, and will be distributed around the world during the month of December.

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in tangible ways to needy children around the world, and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since the program began, nearly 70 million shoeboxes have been delivered around the world to 135 different countries. Some of the children WordServe Church has worked with in Bogota, Colombia, have been recipients of these shoeboxes.
