It was a simple idea that became the worldwide ministry of Operation Christmas Child—to minister to children in war-torn and famine-stricken countries.  In just two decades it has inspired everyday people to provide more than 100 million gift-filled shoeboxes to needy children in 130 countries. This beautiful book weaves the moving, God-saturated story of the ministry’s beginning with the soul-stirring, Christ exalting stories of lives that have been forever changed by a simple shoebox. Operation Christmas Child is filled with full-color photos of children whose smiles help tell what is a thoroughly hopeful story. Samaritan's Purse President Franklin Graham provides insight as the incredible stories of life transformation are told. Proceeds from Operation Christmas Child go to support the ministry it seeks to celebrate and honor.

Just finished reading this well-written, organized, enjoyable and powerful engaging book about the work of God in the lives of Operation Christmas Child Shoebox organizers, packers, processors, distributors, and recipients world wide. If you are questioning whether God is at work in the world, or if there is hope in the dark places of life, read this book. If you love children, toys, crayons and all-things-fun, read this book.
