Operation Christmas Child | Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts around the world to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease.
Kevin Austin | For many years we have partnered with Kevin Austin, the Founder and Director of the Set Free Movement. Kevin and Set Free work to end modern slavery through community-based action. He and his staff work around the world to help those forced to work without pay in agriculture, construction, sex work, factories, and restaurants. Each year we focus on these issues on Freedom Sunday, learning about how we can make a difference and be aware to help those in our community who might be trafficked.
ICCM Child Sponsorship | International Child Care Ministries is a child sponsorship initiative serving 20,000 children in over 30 countries. As individuals commit to sponsoring a child through ICCM, children receive education, meals, clothing and basic medical care. This gives them an opportunity for a better life and reduces the vulnerabilty that can often lead to human trafficking.
