There are so many stories about how God met very specific needs of the children who received gifts, and there are many more stories .about how the shoe box gifts lead children to discover the love of Jesus and in turn change their lives forever. 2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to him- self through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his ap- peal through us."
