In 2013, 9,985,210 gift-filled shoeboxes were lovingly packed and provided to children around the world through Operation Christmas Child. I first heard about this ministry in 1995 and have been participating in it ever since. I always look forward to packing a shoebox for a young boy and girl. My kids also help and we make it a family tradition each year.
Last month, we found out where our shoeboxes were delivered to. Each shoebox had a unique barcode on the label. We received an email with a tracking notice that told us the country where our shoebox gifts were received. They were delivered to Panama and Mongolia! =) Click the country name to learn more about the work of Operation Christmas Child there.
