Operation Christmas Child Box Destination Update

I promised an update on where our Operation Christmas Child boxes ended up, and here it is!  Our 29 boxes were divided up and ended up in three different locations: Chad, the Philippines, and Burkina Faso.  Be sure to click on each country to learn more about the shoebox ministry there.  For example, did you know that:

Shoebox gifts collected in the United States in 2015 will be delivered to 161,760 children in Chad. Praise God that over 621,316 children have received a shoebox since 2002, when Operation Christmas Child began distributing gifts there.
  • Chad has 11.6 million people and is located in Central Africa
  • 44% of the population is 14 years old or younger
I have to be honest, I did not even know there was a country called Burkina Faso. Please follow the links to learn more about the final destinations of our boxes and join us in continuing to pray for the recipients.
