Scotty McCreery's Dominican Republic Trip, Story and Pictures via Samaritan Purse

Scotty McCreery recently traveled to the Dominican Republic to hand out Shoe Boxes, filled with gifts to the children there. Today http://www.SamaritanPurse.org posted Scotty's story.  This is just heart warming! Enjoy.  Make sure you click the link at the end to see a lot more pictures of Scotty and his family in the DR.
American Idol winner Scotty McCreery and his family traveled to the Dominican Republic in December to give Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts to children.

During their time in the country, some 2,500 children received shoe boxes and heard the Good News of Jesus Christ. Boxes were handed out in orphanages, schools, rural communities, and a children’s hospital in the capital city of Santo Domingo.




The McCreery family also attended the kickoff celebration of The Greatest Journey discipleship program at a church in Santo Domingo. Some 650 kids were there to enjoy the music, puppets, and skits that brought the Bible stories to life.

Later, Scotty played baseball with some of the kids who had received shoe boxes.




This marks the third year that The Greatest Journey has been offered by churches in the Dominican Republic, and we anticipate over 47,000 children will enroll in the classes this year. As the distributions continue, please pray for the more than 200,000 children who will be receiving shoe box gifts in the country in 2012. Pray that these children and their families will experience the love of Jesus Christ and come to know Him as their Savior.

  5. This just brought tears to my eyes when I seen it! Not to many teenagers would be willing to give up their Christmas break to do something like this! Scotty, his family and friends were such a blessing to those families they met. The smile on Scotty's face says it all.
