Lejla Allison's Testimony - Operation Christmas Child - Video Edition

I just came across this video by Jeff Douglas of Lejla's story and some follow-up content. I think it's a great promotion of what Operation Christmas Child is about, which is acting on God's heart of compassion for the poor and downtrodden in order to bring about hope and healing.

My advice (unless you've got a nice speedy connection) is to press play, then pause it and wait for it to buffer a decent chunk so that you can watch it without it pausing on you all the time.

Hi Mike,

Thank you so much for featuring Lejla on your blog. It's really a great story!

I just want to make sure your readers know that this isn't my video. I edited it and I posted it to the Web. That's the reason my name is all over it, but there were a number people at Samaritan's Purse who had just as big a part to play in the production as I did. Ultimately, however, the story doesn't belong to any of us. "Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to thy name give glory..." -Psalm 115
