Your shoebox is the first step to transforming a young life for eternity. Every shoebox delivered is a tangible expression of God’s love. It presents an opportunity in more than 100 countries for church partners to invite children into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through a follow-up discipleship program called “The Greatest Journey (TGJ).” This is a dynamic approach to discipleship with 12 Bible lessons led by trained leaders to teach the children to become devoted followers of Christ.
So…where did our boxes go in 2015? Here are some interesting facts concerning where our boxes landed:
BELIZE - located on the eastern coast of Central America where 35% of the population 14 or younger; 9,000 children have enrolled in “TGJ” and more than 1,000 have graduated from it
GHANA - located in West Africa where 38% of the population 14 or younger; 70,000 have enrolled and 54,000 graduated from “TGJ”
UGANDA - located in East Africa where 48% of the population 14 or younger; 126,000 have enrolled and 124,000 graduated from “TGJ”
SOUTH AFRICA - where 28% of the population 14 or younger; 32,000 have enrolled and 23,000 graduated from “TGJ”
Now that you have the facts about where our boxes were delivered, we should be excited to see what countries God takes us to this year. What a simple way to participate in such a wonderful worldwide mission!
