Samaritans Purse’s “Operation Christmas Child” is one of the great stories of the last quarter century!
It combines a lot of values and ingredients: loving children, loving God, being obedient to God, unity in a great cause, sharing joy (and for some, an antidepressant), sharing the Good News of Jesus, discipleship … on and on!
With the OCC results of 2019 recently tabulated, Vicki provides these results in numbers:
- 8,900,000 prepared and distributed in the USA!
- 10,500,000 – including the USA – prepared and distributed worldwide!
- 178,500,000 (178 million) prepared and distributed by Samaritans Purse since it began in 1993!
In this brief radio recording, St. Louis City and County OCC Director Vicki Stamps gives this wonderful update. Together we thank everyone who made any contribution to make it happen. Vicki has been volunteering since her daughter was a little child … and now she is an adult.
Vicki Stamps provides her cell phone number (314 363-1150), wanting to be contacted by anyone with questions and the desire to participate.
She welcomes you becoming a OCC volunteer … and sharing in the great joy it provides.
