Samaritan's Purse: "The Power of a Simple Gift": packing a shoebox
Today, October 2, at the pot luck Sunday brunch at the First Baptist Church of the City of Washington DC, a short (about 14 min) film by “Samarian’s Purse” (link) was shown, titled “The Power of a Simple Gift”.
The video seemed to be a collage of many videos on YouTube by SamirtansPurse, documenting Operation Christmas Child (in many countries; the sample below is for the Phillipines), with another Operation, “Pack a Shoebox”. The shoebox should specifically not contain toys that might have been acceptable in earlier generations, specifically toy weapons. There is a lot of emphasis on giving school supplies.
