This is Oksana Nelson giving her amazing, inspiring, touching story to a full house at Island Christian Church. Oksana was an orphan in Russia who received a shoebox at the age of 9, and it completely changed her life.
The program included a delicious hot breakfast, a word from the Suffolk County Operation Christmas Child coordinator, wonderful videos and Oksana’s testimony. There were many children in attendance and their questions to her afterwards showed a great deal of enthusiasm for the shoebox outreach. Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse.
