Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on way for Canadians to bless struggling children in the developing world by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and other items. We collect the boxes and distribute them in the name of Jesus Christ to children living in desperate situations.
Like hundreds of other churches in Canada, Lightway assembles gift boxes for distribution around the globe each December. We were pleased to receive a note of "thank-you" from the parent organization, Samaritan's Purse Canada, this week. In it, they said 517,437 gift shoeboxes were sent out from Canada in 2018.
