Operation Christmas Child 2023
WCLN's Dan DeBruler and Nicole Nelson from Operation Christmas Child discuss the organization's mission and achievements.
Last year, they delivered their 250 millionth shoebox to a child in Ukraine. This year, despite fewer participating countries, they aim to collect 22,000 shoeboxes, with the Carolinas targeting 1 million. Each shoebox gift leads to an invitation to a discipleship program, with an estimated three people coming to faith per box. The initiative, which started in the 1990s during the Bosnia conflict, now globally provides children with essential items and knowledge of Jesus.
The upcoming National Collection Week is crucial for gathering these gifts before Thanksgiving. Nicole shares inspiring stories of adults who received shoeboxes as children, and the host encourages community participation in the collection effort.
