Just Another Day

Imagine a world where your babies believe Christmas Day...is just another day. 

Another day to wonder if they will eat. 

Another day to walk for miles for water. 
Another day to get up early and go to the market to try to bring in some money.

For many children this is exactly what they have to look forward to on Christmas.  Giving through the Compassion International Christmas Gift Catalogue provides an opportunity for the churches we partner with in the poorest countries to personally hand these gifts to a child in poverty, to meet their need, and to tell them Jesus loves them. The gift of salvation. And hope. 

Care for a baby's medical needs for 1 year - $55

Provide seeds for a garden that will provide immediate food and income generation - $10

Gift safe water for life for a child and their family - $79 

In this season I ask for your help. For whatever reason, the response to this year's catalogue has been slim. Can you let Christ use you today? Bless someone on your Christmas list by buying one of these gifts in their name. I've pledged to raise $100 so here's my rare ask of anyone reading today:

  • Will 10 of you give $10?
  • Or 5 of you $20?
  • Maybe 2 of you feel called to give $50
  • Or will 1 of you bless these children with $100 in gifts?
For Jesus, giving meant giving everything he had to give. And He asked us to take care of those less fortunate. I would be humbled if you would join with me to change the future for these precious babies.

Blessings to you and yours. In His Name,
