Christmas is a time of charity and giving to your fellow man, and every year charities like Operation Christmas Child encourage children to spread yuletide cheer by sending out a Christmas gift to someone less fortunate. When a young boy sent a Christmas present to a child he didn’t know, he never imagined that this act of charity would lead to him one day marrying the girl of his dreams. One day in 2011, years after sending the initial charity parcel, he got a surprise message online out of the blue from the Philippines where he had sent the Christmas gift and his life would never be the same and his story gained the attention of the entire world.
Tyrel Wolfe is a man with a truly unique story. It all began in 2000 when he was a seven-year-old boy living in Idaho.
He decided to take part in Operation Christmas Child, a worldwide Samaritan’s Purse initiative that encourages people to create shoebox packages full of necessities and toys for children living in less fortunate situations.
