The Amazing Journey of a Shoebox Gift Begins with You and Results in Evangelism, Discipleship, and Multiplication.

Now that you have sent off your what?


Pray for everyone who is involved in the distribution of these gifts. Many times they are going into areas where proclaiming the Good News is often prohibited. Pray for the safety of those distributing and receiving. Pray for opened hearts, minds and souls. Pray that a great awakening can happen around the world. Pray that those who receive the boxes may impact their families and friends. 

So simply stated...PRAY!
