On Sunday, May 4, 2014, College of the Ozarks was recognized for its ten years of commitment to Operation Christmas Child a project of Samaritan’s Purse. Since 1993, Samaritan’s Purse has provided more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries with shoebox gifts and the message of Jesus through Operation Christmas Child.
On behalf of College of the Ozarks Dr. Davis and Christian Ministries students: Katie Rose Stilley, Katie Nooe, Kelsea Inson, and Justice Knight accepted the “Ten Year Award,” from Winnie Tuckness, Volunteer Area Coordinator for Operation Christmas Child.
“We are grateful to have been a ministry partner with Samaritan’s Purse through Operation Christmas Child over the last decade,” said Dean of Christian Ministries Dr. Justin Carswell. “The simple gift of love delivered in a shoe box changed the lives of several of our current international students, and we see the fruit of the ministry first hand and are excited to continue partnering with Operation Christmas Child for many years to come.”
