Another year completed! Boxes overflowing with God's blessings!

Our boxes, here in Klamath Falls, are now on their way! We are rejoicing because we had SO many shoeboxes, that we ran out of cartons to put them in YESTERDAY... and the rest of yesterday's and today's shoeboxes had to get put in whatever boxes we could find!! SO many children will receive the good news of Jesus Christ and receive this tangible expression of YOUR love and GOD'S love and this makes me REJOICE!!

So, what if you missed the deadline??

If you packed a box, you can no longer deliver it here in Klamath Falls, but you can choose to mail it on to Samaritan's Purse.

Operation Christmas Child
Samaritan's Purse
P.O. Box 3000
801 Bamboo Road
Boone, NC 28607

OR you can pack a box online!

You can choose to pack a box online that will bless a child! To do that, go to

Or maybe you want to give to Samaritan's Purse in other ways... you can sponsor the Greatest Journey.. the 12 week discipleship course that is often done where the shoeboxes are distributed. Each child who completes the course will receive a New Testament in their own language. Or you could buy chicks or ducks or help with medical care or education. There are so MANY needs. Learn more at

There are so many needs that sometimes it can feel overwhelming.. but we can make SO much of a difference through ONE shoebox, transforming a child's life, bringing the Good News and rich blessings in our simple gifts. And while one of us alone can not solve the world's problems, one plus one plus one.... we can bring such hope and blessings for the glory of God!

THANK YOU for your care! Your love! And your prayers!

  1. wow, that is great you had "too many" shoe boxes--great problem to have. Our family has always enjoyed "shopping" in the Samaritan's Purse gift catalog each year. There is something for everyone to choose that is meaningful for them. It is a great way to give to someone who has everything, too, or for a friend or family memory in memory of someone special they have lost this past year. We make a night of going thru and reading the catalog and making our choices. I highly recommend it as a Christmas tradition along with the shoe boxes.
