The Greatest Journey

5,000 Kids In 5 Days

Would you like to help us send 5,000 kids on The Greatest Journey of their lives?

6,388 Children


This is your chance to play a part in changing the lives of thousands of boys and girls across the globe by providing them The Greatest Journey. Over the next five days, we want to reach 5,000 children with the Good News of the Gospel.

Children, their families, and their communities desperately need the hope of Jesus Christ, as the COVID-19 pandemic has created uncertainty and fear in many around the world — including kids.

Each $10 gift provides a child with the chance to go on The Greatest Journey, learning about who Jesus is and how to follow Him. Each child is taught by a trained teacher and receives a workbook, a Bible in their own language, and a graduation certificate.

It’s a small investment, but together we can make a huge impact in the lives of children worldwide.

Will you prayerfully consider donating $10 to this five-day campaign that ends at midnight on 31 July?

What is The Greatest Journey?

Every year, Samaritan’s Purse delights millions of children around the world by delivering shoebox gifts packed by people like you, through our Operation Christmas Child project.

As exciting as it is to bring the joy of Christmas to these children, the story doesn’t end with the shoebox — that’s just the beginning.

After receiving shoebox gifts, children are invited back to participate in our discipleship program, The Greatest Journey. Through this 12-lesson course, which includes Bible stories and Scripture memorisation, they learn how to follow Christ in their daily lives as they share Him with friends and family. More than 23.3 million children have enrolled in this program since 2009.

Sending Good News and Great Joy

Discover how Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts lead to evangelism, discipleship, and the multiplication of believers and churches.

A Graduation Celebration

After completing The Greatest Journey, children attend a graduation celebration and receive a certificate.

Most importantly, they are given a Bible that includes the New Testament and selected Old Testament stories along with a dictionary of Biblical terms and a map of Bible lands. Complete with illustrations, it is often the first copy of God’s Word the child, or their family, will own.

Family and friends who attend the ceremony hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Hearing the Good News and testimonies during their loved one’s graduation reinforces the changes they have seen in the students’ lives, and their families often come to faith in Christ.
