Each Christmas season, Team members collect, package and distribute a small gift bag to the less fortunate children, and a food basket of beans and rice to the adults in the poorer regions of the country. Included in the gift bags and food is a Christian tract and a New Testament bible so God’s word will be presented to those in need. During the Christmas mission trips normally over 2000 gift bags and 10,000 pounds of food is distributed during one week. NCO, partner organizations and various churches collect toys and gifts for this ministry all year long in preparation for Christmas. This is not just limited to Christmas either. There are teams that are handing out food bags whenever they come to communities around Nicaragua.
