If you are a fan of OCC and love to do shoeboxes, this is a book for you. Tells of how OCC got started and its ministry leading up to 2013. You won't be disappointed. All proceeds goes to support this great ministry.

I've been participating in Operation Christmas Child for the last 5 years and I've grown to love this project. It really is amazing to see what happens in receiving countries and in the lives of children when they get their shoebox gift. I love all the color photos! The history of this project is really laid out nicely and it's awesome to see how it started and grew. I'm so glad this book was written. It's a great read. Also, none of the segments are drawn out so if you tend to have a short amount of reading time, you can usually get a couple of segments in during one sitting. I highly recommend this book.

I have packed shoeboxes here and there over the past few years - kind of just mindlessly. I was out of reading materials and picked up this book, not my typical genre, and I'm so glad I did. The chapters are short one page chapters which made starting and stopping easy for this busy mom of three. So much information from how it got started to testimonials from recipients to inspiring stories of an 8 year old girl who starting a shoebox club that now (four years later) has over 80 members who meet year round. If you need to center and refocus your heart before the Christmas season chaos and gluttony starts, I highly recommend you reading this.

The book is a compilation of stories about Franklin Graham's Operation Christmas Child. The stories are heart warming and inspiring. After reading the book I had no doubt that our God is a God of details. From those that pack and pray over the shoe boxes here in the US to the boy or girl that prays for a specific need and out of the 10 million shoe boxes shipped each year the one box they open has the specific item that they needed. Wow! After reading the book when to their Facebook page and am following all the stories coming our of this year's shoe-box distributions. What a great way to share the gospel.

So I love Operation Christmas Child, so my sister gave me this book to read. It's a quick read packed with interesting and inspiring stories that really boost your faith in the program and also in the Lord. The chapters are so short they make you want to keep reading 'cause it is so easy to read "just one more." The only downside is, I already like to shop through the year for OCC so I can make multiple boxes and it just makes me want to go out and fill even more up. :) Read this book, you'll love it.

This book will make you want to rush out and pack a few more boxes--I have been packing boxes for 17 years and this book told me how much one box can do for a child who never had a gift or heard about Jesus--this box gives the child a gift of learning about Jesus plus tells them that some one loves them enough to send school supplies and toys --I loved ever minute of the book

My wife has recently gotten very involved with this ministry to the children of the world and the books we ordered are being given to members of our church with the request that they choose one story and prepare comments on it for sharing with the congregation when the Shoebox Ministry is presented to the congregation before requesting its participation in the program.
