In addition to hearing the gospel before they receive their shoebox gift, children also receive The Greatest Gift, a storybook that shares the message of salvation. With the Apostle John as narrator, the booklet shares 11 Scripture stories and invites children to follow Christ. Children take this home to share with family and friends. It is used in more than 80 languages. This Serve Days project will prepare the shoeboxes that gifts are packed into, so those participating in the project have all the details they need to pack their shoebox.
