(USA)–And finally, hurting children around the world are the focus of an exciting program at Operation Blessing International. It’s called the Bless-A-Child campaign, which empowers local community organizations, especially churches, to become involved in the healthy and balanced development of at-risk children and youth. OBI’s Jodie Nelson. “Operation Blessing is really wanting to reach them in a holistic manner, addressing their health, their education, their life skills, and of course inherent in all of that is teaching them about the Love of God.” Nelson says as churches get involved young people are being impacted. “A lot of these kids’ lives are totally transformed. They are learning a work ethic and their self-esteem is being improved and they’re coming to know Christ, and their life is changing.” Your gift to Bless-A-Child can help cloth, feed, educated and bring an at risk child to Christ.
