Favorite Ministries

One of our favorite charities/ministries is the Samaritan's Purse. It is ran by Billy Graham's son Franklin Graham. They provide relief and aid to tragedy stricken areas in the USA and in many countries right after the disaster hits.

They also have a ministry called Operation Christmas Child and every year before Christmas they gather millions of shoeboxes filled with goodies. Then in the months to come they deliever them to children all the way around the world that have never received a gift. Not only do they give them a shoebox filled with gifts, but they share the greatest gift of all ~ the Salvation of Jesus!

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.

Being a Southern Baptist girl there is another ministry that is near and dear to my heart ~ The International Missionary Board. Our best friends just came back from South Asia where they served 2 years on the mission field. The IMB has around 5,000 missionaries all around the world. Their main source of income for these missionaries is during the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. To hear first hand the stories that our friends share with us, this ministry truly shares the gospel of Jesus with the world!
