Samaritan's Purse is a nondenominational, evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan's Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease and famine with the purpose of sharing God's love through His Son, Jesus Christ. The organization serves the church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We, at Leawood Baptist Church, are privileged to take part in what Samaritan's Purse is doing through Operation Christmas Child. By simply filling a shoe box with toys we are able to impact the life of a child far away. We may never know until heaven the way God used our feeble efforts.
