Comedian Leland Klassen travels to Senegal with Operation Christmas Child

Leland Klassen is a comedian who went to Senegal to see the impact Operation Christmas Child is having around the world...

Operation Christmas Child provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on project of Samaritan's Purse that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas - Jesus Christ - God's greatest gift.

Every item lovingly added to an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift has the potential to impact a child.

In 2016, several pastors from churches across Canada went on an Operation Christmas Child shoebox distribution trip in Senegal. Christian comedian Leland Klassen joined them.

This year we also had some Canadian volunteers travel with us to Costa Rica to help distribute gift-filled Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, and see the impact of our voluntary “The Greatest Journey” Bible study program for children and families that received shoeboxes
