The Greatest Journey 72-Hour Challenge

In just 72 hours, we want to give as many boys and girls as possible the opportunity to participate in The Greatest Journey!

28-30 JUNE, 2022

After receiving a shoebox gift, many children have the opportunity to enrol in The Greatest Journey – 12 fun and interactive Bible lessons, where they get the chance to discover who Jesus is and how to begin their own journey of faith. For just £5, you can give a child this experience complete with a colourful student workbook, and a Bible in their own language.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations.” Matthew 28:19"


Why Do We share the Good News of Jesus?


“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations.” Matthew 28:19

These were among Jesus Christ’s final words before He left the earth. We simply seek to be obedient to His command as we invite people to follow Him. Guiding children to walk in faith introduces them to a growing relationship that transforms their lives, families, communities, and nations.

“Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.” Mark 10:14


How Do We Do it?


This exciting journey begins with a shoebox gift. Local churches invite children to festive outreach events where shoebox gifts are distributed and the Good News of new life and hope in Jesus is shared in a child friendly way. Afterward, these churches invite children to participate in The Greatest Journey Bible discovery programme. This 12-lesson course introduces them to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and encourages them to grow as faithful followers.

Samaritan’s Purse also trains local, volunteer teachers to lead each course. Since 2009, more than 1.5 million teachers have been trained and nearly 31 million children have enrolled in The Greatest Journey!



“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.”

Luke 6:38

How Do I Get Involved?


Your gift of £5 gives one child the opportunity to participate in The Greatest Journey! This investment not only supplies them with a colourful workbook, a New Testament in their own language, and a graduation certificate, but also equips his or her teacher with training and resources.
