After sharing the story of the Good Samaritan, Jesus said “Go and do likewise.” That is the mission of Samaritan’s Purse—to follow the example of Christ by helping those in need and proclaiming the hope of the Gospel.
Our task is not only to give parcels to children, but also to give them the Good News that Jesus Christ died for each of them, then he rose again and now lives, loves them, wants to look after them and wants to be theirs. We want to show children through this small gesture of giving preferences how much God is interested in them and show them His love.
After distributing packages, we invite children to the fascinating program of ” The Greatest Journey “. The Greatest Journey is a series of amazing lessons that take children on a journey of God’s Word.
Classes take place in a nice and child-friendly atmosphere, in the presence of two teachers specially trained for it. To preserve the lessons of the Greatest Journey we use specially prepared for children textbooks, which contain fragments from the Bible, various tasks, and puzzles that encourage children to think independently and deal with different situations. Parents/guardians of children, for whom we can offer coffee and small refreshments, can take part in classes. We make sure that children feel safe, loved, tolerated because that is the nature of God.
After completing the course there is a ceremonial handing over of the most magnificent certificate, and giving away additional gifts.
