Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.

Uncle Si thumbEvery year New Life participates in Operation Christmas Child (OCC) and this year will be no different. For those who aren’t familiar with OCC it is campaign where we, along with thousands of other churches, pack shoeboxes with toys and other small gifts such as hygiene items to be delivered around the world to children who have very little. It’s a great cause that helps those less fortunate than us in Christ’s name.

My family and I do it every year. We even track the box to find out what country it goes to. Bring your shoebox to the nZone by Nov 24th. Not sure how to get started or what to include in your box? Watch the video below to see what Uncle Si put in his box. Still need more info? Contact [email-obfuscate email=”ektardiff@gmail.com” link_title=”Katie Tardiff”].

jesus storybook bibleOne other thing… Uncle Si mentions the Jesus Storybook Bible. I love that Bible and read it to my son for years. It’s great. Every story in it relates back to Jesus and that’s pretty cool.
