White Spots

White spots represent non-participating or sensitive countries.

Some shoeboxes were shipped to sensitive countries that can’t be named in order to maintain the safety of our ministry partners who live and work there. – Jordan Roten, OCC

From Packer to Receiver

Each box we pack goes to a child.  A real, live child.

One box, one child.

That’s 9.9 million children, in one year, who heard the Gospel – the good news that Jesus Christ took our sins on His own self, so we could live in freedom and forgiveness, here and hereafter.
