In the hands of local churches, every gift-filled shoebox is
a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship—transforming the lives of
children and their families around the world through the Good News of Jesus
As shoebox gifts are distributed, local pastors or church
leaders present the Gospel in a fun way designed for kids while family and
friends listen in. Along with their shoebox gift, children also receive The
Greatest Gift, a colorful presentation of the Gospel in their own language.
Their shoebox is the first gift many children have ever
received! The treasures and personal letters inside communicate that someone
cares for them and give them an opportunity to experience the love of God.
Local churches use gift-filled shoeboxes as a tangible
inroad for evangelism. The shoebox gifts allow them access to places they might
never be welcomed otherwise.
Even before The Greatest Journey course is over, students
begin witnessing to others. Then at graduation, the Gospel is shared with their
friends and family again. The graduates also receive a New Testament to use
personally and in communicating their faith to others.
Through the efforts of local believers on our National
Leadership Teams, entire communities are being evangelized as shoebox gifts are
delivered. Some of these areas do not have any existing church.
