A Christian Organization, Operation Christmas Child (OCC) has appealed to the Church of Christ in Nations, COCIN for support in reaching out to the un-reached Children with the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The National Coordinator, Dr. Sam Inyang made the appeal recently during a courtesy visit to the COCIN President, Rev. Dr. Dachollom Datiri in his office in Jos. According to him OCC is a Project of Samaritan’s Purse under the leadership of Franklin Graham, son of the famous Evangelist, Billy Graham.
He added that the mission of the project is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to the needy children around the world together with the local churches worldwide to share the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ.
OCC gives Millions of shoe boxes as gifts of love to children all over the world yearly and have visited IDPs camps and crisis communities in Bokkos and Barkin Ladi LGAs of Plateau State.
The COCIN President, Rev. Dr. Dachollom Datiri welcomed and appreciate them for availing themselves to be used by God. He commended the programme as a great initiative in drawing the attention of the children to the Lord Jesus Christ.
He further commended them for their commitment which does not stop at distribution of gifts but also reaching out and discipling the younger ones and promised to discuss their request with the appropriate Council and pass it down to the local congregations.
