A Wonderful Year End Recap For Operation Christmas Child
Hello LifePoint Family. Recently I received a wonderful report sharing the results of this year’s efforts for Operation Christmas Child. LifePoint had the best turnout we have ever had and the LP family filled more than 400 boxes almost doubling what we did last year!! Thank you and the children of the world thank you for your efforts. Please allow me to share the email I received from the Operation Christmas Child Regional Office in Denver, Colorado.
We hope that your first three months as an Operation Christmas Child volunteer leader has confirmed for you that God will continuously equip and inspire you to be His servant of the gospel. The most powerful and tangible confirmation is when we learn that children have dedicated their lives to Jesus Christ. That is happening all over the world thanks to volunteers like you who seek to spread the Good News of Jesus through a gift-filled shoebox.
Because of those shoeboxes, last year:
• 3,917,874 children enrolled to take The Greatest Journey.
• 186,440 Teachers were trained to teach The Greatest Journey.
• 1,915,780 children chose Jesus as their savior.
• 1,984,694 children are praying for others to know Jesus and they are sharing the Good News.
Since The Greatest Journey was launched in 2009:
• 14,995,498 children enrolled to take The Greatest Journey.
• 718,183 teachers have been trained to teach The Greatest Journey.
• 6,974,428 children chose Jesus as their savior.
• 7,607,553 children are praying for others to know Jesus and they are sharing the Good News.
Each one of those numbers represents a unique life-changing story, a transformation in someone’s life. Please follow this link and enjoy the impact of OCC’s discipleship program between one little girl and her heavenly father. It began with a shoebox, which began with the service of volunteers like you.
What a privilege it is to serve the Lord Jesus with you!
