We’re so thankful for Operation Christmas Child who sponsor Download Youth Ministry every month – this is a BIG week for them as they collect more than 7 million shoeboxes for kids all around the world! National Collection week is Nov 18-25 – be sure to watch the video above with Uncle Si from Duck Dynasty. So funny!

Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.
