Suriname

Suriname is a country on the northern coast of South America. A land of tropical rainforests, Suriname is one of the top producers in the tropics of bauxite, the main ore of aluminum. Formerly a Dutch colony, its ethnic diversity also includes South Asian and African influences. Samaritan’s Purse began distributing gift-filled shoeboxes there in 1998 and launched The Greatest Journey, our follow-up discipleship program, in this nation in 2013.

Read Stories from the Field

After a boy named Sergio from Suriname received a shoebox gift, he completed The Greatest Journey. He continues to come to church and to attend youth group every week. His mother and grandmother also have received Christ.

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.
