Through its distribution of gift-filled shoeboxes to over 150 countries and territories throughout the globe, Operation Christmas Child brings God’s love to needy children in a tangible manner.

This week’s guest, Richard Estep, has served as network coordinator for Operation Christmas Child since 2012 here in Southeastern Colorado. He has witnessed the impact of this monumental project from the starting point of packing a box and working a collection site to the final destination of distribution of the gift-filled boxes in foreign countries. Richard will share his testimony of how these simple boxes hold the promise of hope in Jesus Christ and forever change the lives of countless children in a dark and hurting world.
