More than just Shoe Boxes

This week many, if not most, evangelical churches in America — across denominations — are participating in Operation Christmas child, a fun program to provide shoe-box sized gifts of toys, candy and school supplies to impoverished children around the world.

My family has participated since my kids were toddlers, and it has become a special family Christmas tradition. And in the spirit of this week’s generous gift giving, I just wanted to remind my fellow shoe-box givers that this same organization is also on the front lines rescuing Syrian refugees. Brothers and sisters, lets keep our hearts open!
