5 Easter Gifts to Bring you Joy, Reflection and to Bless Others

As we journey through this Lent season, we’ve collected five free gifts to bless and inspire you as we look with anticipation to Easter and Jesus’ triumphant victory over death.

We hope these small tokens of our appreciation will give you time to reflect, bring you joy and enable you to bless others. 

We’re so grateful to each of you for faithfully supporting this ministry with such passion and dedication. Thanks to your support, our local church partners are able to share the hope of the Easter message with children and families around the world.

“Easter means Jesus has risen from the dead; He wins over death. He died because He loves me. He is risen for me and for those who believe in Him.” Nine-year-old Raya from Indonesia.
