Missio Dei is participaitng in Operation Christmas Child! This is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. Each year Operation Christmas Child works to collect, stuff, and ship shoe boxes to children all over the world! Missio Dei is joining Samaritan’s Purse in their efforts to reach 100 million children for Christ! 

We want YOU to pack a box! How can YOU help? Simple! 

Follow the instructions below or ask Jenny Hunter for more information! 

1.SHOE BOX

Use an empty shoe box (standard size, please) or a small plastic container. You can wrap the box (lid separately), but wrapping is not required.

PRAY for the child who will receive your special gift.

2. BOY OR GIRL?

Determine whether your gift will be for a boy or a girl, and the child’s age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Print out the appropriate boy/girl label shown below. Mark the correct age category on the label, and tape the label to the top of your box.

3. FILL WITH GIFTS

Fill the box with a variety of gifts that will bring delight to a child.

4. INCLUDE YOUR DONATION

Please donate $7 or more for each shoe box you prepare to help cover shipping and other project costs.* You can give online, or you can write a check to Samaritan’s Purse (note “OCC” on memo line) and place it in an envelope on top of the gift items inside your box. If you or your family are preparing more than one shoe box, please make one combined donation.

It’s easy and convenient to give online. Go to www.samaritanspurse.org/occ.

5. DROP OFF – Missio Dei will take your box the rest of the way  Please remember to bring your boxes in on or before Sunday November 18th!
