We've talked about the issue of human trafficking and exploitation many times on the show, but I especially wanted to highlight it this morning because some great things happened to rescue children this past weekend!

It's Time for Operation Christmas Child!

 I've discussed Operation Christmas Child on the air the past couple weeks and I want to share it with you.  Operation Christmas Child is a great ministry of Samaritans Purse where you can provide shoebox Christmas gifts to children all over the world. Not only are gifts provided, but the Gospel is shared with each gift that is passed out, so children can receive the ultimate gift of Salvation.  Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has passed out over 77 million shoe boxes. It is a great national ministry, but there are also many ways you can get involved locally.
