After sharing the story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37), Jesus said “Go and do likewise.” That is the mission of Samaritan's Purse—to follow the example of Christ by helping those in need and proclaiming the hope of the Gospel.
Smithfield Baptist designates certain items to be collected each month. In November, a team packs all the items in a shoebox as gifts that are sent to Samaritan Purse, who in turn, ships them to children around the world as Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts. These gifts lead to evangelism, discipleship, and the multiplication of believers and churches.
July's Collection Items
- small clothing items
- flip flops
Operation Christmas Child is also in need of empty adult size shoe boxes and empty pill bottles.
