Operation Christmas Child




Here at Bloom! we are passionate about encouraging you, our readers, in Biblical womanhood and loving Jesus.  Through this vision flows our desire to share the Good News around the globe, in our own country and around the world. Maybe you didn't have the opportunity to minister in another country this year.  Don't worry, because there is still time left to do so, without even taking a plane ride!

Introducing Operation Christmas Child (OCC)!

A ministry of Samaritan's Purse, OCC was started in 1993 with the vision to reach children around the world with the love of Jesus.  With this objective, they have sent millions of shoeboxes filled with toys, school items, and a book in the child's native language sharing the Gospel.  This year OCC will hit the 100 million shoebox mark and we encourage you to be a part of this great cause in sharing God's love!

To find out how to pack a shoebox, where to drop it off (collection week is November 12-19!), faq, and more, head on over to OCC's website!

  2. I really think that this was overflowing with God's love. The smile on those kids faces just warm your heart, and breaks it at the same time, knowing that this may be their first gift ever, or their last gift. My family and I did 8 boxes this year. We only bought stuff to go in 6 boxes but we had an abundance of stuff, that was totally a God thing! I love your blog!
