“Let the children come to Me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.”

Mark 10:14, ESV

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Through this project, Samaritan’s Purse partners with the local church worldwide to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and make disciples of the nations.

Gravelly's goal is to send over 550 shoeboxes this year.
