Franklin Graham found an empty Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift in the ashes in Iraq—the church had been burned and destroyed by ISIS.

Thi Sah received a shoebox gift when she was 12-years-old—and that day she came to know Christ! A few weeks ago, Thi Sah was a part of delivering shoebox gifts to children in the village where she teaches Bible stories every Saturday. Now 23, she prays that one day children at this distribution will come to know more about Jesus.
