It was a simple idea that became the worldwide ministry of Operation Christmas Childto 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 ministrys 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.
Franklin Graham has devoted his life to meeting the needs of people around the world and proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The eldest son of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham, Franklin serves as president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association as well as Samaritans Purse, the parent organization for Operation Christmas Child.
Donna Lee Toney has been a colleague of Franklin Graham for over thirty years. Serving Samaritans Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in many various capacities, she has also served in literary collaboration with the Grahams since 1982, including the most recent Billy Graham release Nearing Home and The Sower with Franklin Graham.

retired135 Stars Out Of 5Everyone should readNovember 16, 2015retired13Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This book really puts Operation Christmas Child into perspective. It was interesting to read how it actually came about and then to see how God used Franklin Graham and his "contacts" as well as a little "unknown" mountain woman to do His work. I purchased several of these books and loaned them out to our church members and it has really made a difference in their attitude about giving and packing OCC shoeboxes this year.

KarenAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Simple Gifts - Profound LoveNovember 21, 2013KarenAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a book of miracles, a book of hope, and a book of love. I was delighted to read of the start of Operation Christmas Child, and how this has grown over the years. Stories of boxes filled and brought by the tractor-trailer load filled me with delight. Descriptions of the "perfect" gifts finding just the right child (and in some cases, adult!) left me in awe of the wonderful, miraculous God who knows each of us! I am blessed to be a shoebox-packer, and to share this love for others with so many others. We are so blessed - and this book is a reminder to share those blessings with those less fortunate. I now have three copies of the book, so I can share them with others.
