On Sunday, September 24th at 6 p.m., First Evangelical Free Church in Maplewood, MN will host their Third Annual Operation Christmas Child Fundraiser Concert. While the concert is free, donations will be collected to ship gift-filled shoeboxes, packed by local volunteers, to children living in poverty around the world. The benefit concert will feature performances by country gospel group, The Preacher’s Daughters, and local pianist, Joshua Thompkins. Shoebox recipient, Ted Foreman, will also share his story of hope when he received a shoebox gift as an orphan child living in the former Soviet Union. Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, is an international Christian relief and evangelism organization that demonstrates God’s love in a tangible way to children in need across the globe.
