Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Word of Peace is honored to be a Relay Center for Operation Christmas Child each year. During National Collection Week Word of Peace receives filled shoe boxes from the community.
