You can bring the Easter story to Kiwi kids!


Our newest book in the series is going to be seriously surprising for kids! The Seriously Surprising Story draws children into the biblical story of Easter as they follow in the footsteps of Jesus’ followers on the road to Emmaus. There they encounter a stranger, and talk to him about the things that have happened in Jerusalem. Just as the disciples were surprised, so children will be too when they learn the stranger is Jesus himself!


This year, 85,000 more Kiwi kids can learn the story of Easter!

It’s only thanks to the generosity of our supporters that we have been able to bring The Well Good News of Christmas and The Super Cool Story of Jesus to New Zealand children. Now you have an opportunity to share the Bible story of Easter through The Seriously Surprising Story.

You can help bring this book to kids who don’t know about Jesus.

To do this we’ll again be working with our partner organisations and churches, and using social media to get this book into the hands of children who may have never heard the story of Jesus.

You can make a difference in the lives of the next generation of Kiwi kids. By making a gift, you’ll be giving children the chance to encounter the risen Jesus, through this colourful and fun little book.

Each gift of $8.50 will enable us to provide ten copies of The Seriously Surprising Story to partner organisations and churches for distribution. Thank you for prayerfully considering helping us to reach New Zealand children with The Seriously Surprising Story.
