Can you imagine personally handing shoe box gifts to children on the other side of the world? Sixteen-year-old, Ben Kendrick did just that in July, 2012. Ben was selected as one of 21 youth from across the United States to travel to Mongolia as part of a Samaritan’s Purse Youth (“SPY”) Team. The SPY Team participated in several different Operation Christmas Child shoe box distribution events in and around Mongolia’s capital city of Ulaan Bataar. Ben will share his personal experiences distributing shoebox gifts to children in Mongolia.
