You will bless a child in


Honduras is located in Central America and is one of the poorest nations in the region. Devastated by Hurricane Mitch in 1998, the country has rebounded in part due to its production of sugar cane, tropical fruit, and coffee. Samaritan’s Purse began delivering Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts to Honduran children in 1996. We have also offered these shoebox recipients The Greatest Journey, our follow-up discipleship course, since 2009.

Read Stories from the Field

Samaritan’s Purse is partnering with Honduran churches to plant new congregations in hard-to-reach areas the country. In one community located six hours from the nearest city, many of the residents are of the Lenca ethnic group. Operation Christmas Child outreach events were hosted for children of this community and as a result, whole families came to faith in Jesus Christ. The Greatest Journey discipleship course that teaches children how to follow Christ and share Him with others was so effective that course participants are now discipling adults! A new church has been established for these families to continue worshipping God together.

Pray for Your Shoebox Recipient

Whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”—Matthew 21:22

Please don’t stop praying for the boy or girl that you first lifted up when you packed your shoebox. Continue to ask God to soften his or her heart to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, so that he or she will follow Him all the days of their life. Pray also for families and entire communities to be transformed as God’s love is shared through your simple gift.

The Greatest Journey

After your shoebox gift delights a boy or girl, you can give them the opportunity to participate in The Greatest Journey.

Taught by trained local teachers, this 12-lesson discipleship program shows children how to follow Christ and share Him with others. As boys and girls share the Scripture stories they learn in class, their friends and family come to faith—growing churches, starting new congregations, and transforming communities by the power of the Gospel.
