Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is a worldwide distribution of items for children, which is part of Billy Graham's Samaritan's Purse. Contrary to its name, it is really an Evangelistic/Discipleship program, which attracts people with love and respect to listen to a gospel message, and then, for those who are interested, to go on to be discipled. The boxes are really called Gospel Opportunity (GO) boxes.
Samaritan's Purse has trained more than 122,000 people to evangelize and disciple others in their own language. A lot of work goes on in the background, so that the boxes are well received and teachers are ready to disciple.
Our goal at FBCMI is to fill 1,000 boxes. You may use the empty boxes provided by Samaritan's Purse, or any shoebox that you may have. Please prayerfully consider participating in this worldwide opportunity!
