Emmanuel has once again been pleased to support the Christmas Child campaign which distributes Christmas gifts to the less fortunate children in over 130 countries such as Vanuatu, Samoa, Fiji, PNG and Vietnam. It is managed by Samaritans Purse and last year they sent out over 3 Million Christmas boxes.
A shoebox gift from Operation Christmas Child tells a child in need that they are loved and opens up a whole bunch of life-changing opportunities for them, their family and their community. It begins with a shoebox and results in education.
Emmanuel students were pleased to load up more than 280 gifts to be sent out to these children.
You can view some of the joyous videos on the Operation Christmas Child website : www.operationchristmaschild.org.au.
“Every shoebox gift is an opportunity to touch a child’s heart with the love of Jesus Christ.” - Franklin Graham, International President of Samaritan’s Purse.
