Operation Care International is the flagship for providing love and hope for the homeless and impoverished. In obedience to God, we facilitate opportunities for the lost, the least, and the lonely to experience the love of Christ and the hope that there is in Him by meeting their physical needs. With the help of financial donors, volunteers, and our community partners, we are able to have this influence in Dallas, Texas, the United States, and around the world.
The Christmas Gift event is our vehicle for combating spiritual and economic poverty. It is an annual birthday celebration for Jesus honoring the homeless and Impoverished at the Dallas Convention Center. The event is held on December 19th each year and draws thousands to a central location allowing Operation Care to connect our guests to our advocate partners on a large and efficient scale that will help them escape homelessness and poverty.
We aim to be the catalyst showing the love of Christ to the least of these in action, meeting the spiritual needs by sharing the gospel and physical needs all at the same day showing compassion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Following the example of the Lord Jesus Christ, we wash the feet of our guests and provide new footwear and other gifts. God given vision is to provide $10,000.00 to each state and country for the footwear of children.
December 19, 2020 is the grand opening of this global annual event. The daytime outreach will be followed by the global celebration where the good news of the gospel will be proclaimed.
The Community Partners are an important source of help to meet the needs of our homeless and impoverished guests at the Christmas Gift event. At the same time, our community partners strengthen their respective sphere of influence through their involvement. This is especially true in areas with churches that are struggling for relevancy and impact. Strengthening the ministry of those churches is integral to our mission in the community.
GOAL: A world revival and evangelization and praying that billions will come to know Christ while celebrating His birthday. #onedaybillionaires! Operation Care International desires to emulate the Nation’s largest birthday party for Jesus honoring the homeless and impoverished in all 50 states and around the world.
Last March 2020 God placed in our hearts a mission to be the only PPE fulfillment Center for the homeless shelters and ministries in North Texas. In March we provided to 2 shelters, in April to 4 shelters, in May to 10 shelters/ministries, and in June to 12 shelters/ministries, a six-fold increase! The shelters we provided for have had zero infections from the COVID19 virus.
PPE’s that we provide monthly are the following: masks, gloves, and face shields. We also provide these much-needed items to protect our shelters/ministry partners’ staff and the homeless from the COVID19 virus: hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, and thermometers.
God expanded the vision by providing water and food, like fresh produce (beans, apples, oranges, potatoes, onions, carrots), energy bars, snacks like Craisins, and spaghetti sauce.
GOAL: To continue providing PPE’s to the shelters so that they may stay COVID19 infection-free and reduce spreading the virus in the North Texas homeless community.
