"Put Feet to Their Faith" with a Project to Give Shoe Boxes Filled with Gifts to Children in Haiti Through Samaritan's Purse!

If you are looking for a truly "hands-on" service project you could involve the children in your church with to "Put Feet to Their Faith", consider the Shoe Box Project from Samaritan's Purse for children in Haiti. Samaritan's Purse has the goal of providing 250,000 shoe boxes filled with gifts for the children who survived the earthquake in Haiti. Check this link for photos of some of the children who have recently received these shoe boxes.

This is a project children are able to understand and get excited about as they can imagine how they would feel if they were to experience something like an earthquake and then received food, water,  medical care, shelter and a box of gifts from someone who cared about them. More importantly, children who love Jesus will be able to understand why a child in a different country would stop and listen to someone tell them about Jesus when that person cared enough to help them. 

You could challenge each child in your ministry - or each family - to fill one shoe box for a child in Haiti and add $6 for each box to cover "The Greatest Journey Discipleship Program". Children in Haiti will receive the boxes of gifts and learn how to know and walk with Jesus! The real hope for Haiti rests with it's children. If they are reached for Jesus and then discipled, as they become adults it will change the entire country for generations! Children easily understand and identify with other children and the Operation Christmas Child project is a very "hands-on" opportunity for them to "Put Feet to Their Faith" and learn to give to and serve others!
