ACU was excited to partner with Samaritan’s Purse on their Operation Christmas Child campaign this year! In support of OCC’s mission to send the message of God’s love to children in need around the world, we joined together to donate and assemble more than 200 shoeboxes. 

Our students also wrote letters of encouragement for the children, and came together as a Firestorm Family to pray over each of the boxes.

One of ACU’s Core Commitments is to “provide opportunities for students to serve locally and globally, and promote a culture of lifelong commitment to servant-leadership.” Events like this are foundational to who ACU is and who we are calling our students to be. 

Our prayer is that the children who receive these OCC shoeboxes will see how deeply they are loved by God, and that the hope of the Gospel presented in those simple packages would resonate deeply in their hearts.
