Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.  Check out samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child

HELMET OF SALVATION
And take the helmet of salvation…Eph 6:17

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 
and being ready to punish all disobedience when 
your obedience is fulfilled.   2 Cor 10:3-6  NKJV

 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.   2 Tim 1:7   NKJV  

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable 
and perfect will of God.   Rom 12:1-2   NKJV

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent 
and worthy of praise.   Phil 4:8 NLT

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."   
Acts 4:12   NIV

We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.  For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him.   Heb 2:1-3  NIV

Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.  1 Peter 1:8-9  NIV

My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. 
He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress,
 I will never be shaken.  Ps 62:1-2  NIV
