For the second year in a row, ROWAN children received Samaritan’s Purse boxes full of toys! Boys and girls immediately ripped open the tape and started rummaging through the unknown shapes and sizes of gadgets, calculators, hats, toothbrushes, bibles, baby dolls, play-doh, and sweets. The laughing and smiles in the room were simply breathtaking.
Watching it all take place, ROWAN team members realized that the saying is true: It is truly better to give than to receive.
If you make a Samaritan’s Shoebox every year, keep it up! Tangible blessings like these keep our children’s hope very much alive.
