Christmas is a time for family, food and friendship. Here in Canada it also means spending money on gifts for our friends and family. As we prepare for Christmas, let us think about how we can put One Big Smile on the faces of those less fortunate than us.
This catalogue of gifts highlights many ways you can help. The Lord has blessed us over the past few years with some extraordinary opportunities that you can be a part of.
Let me share some with you;
1. Evangelism: All the Evangelism “gifts” in the catalogue come with a matching opportunity. Every dollar given will be matched equally.
2. Water and Sanitation: We receive 1:3 matching funds for this project. When sanitation facilities are improved at schools, we find that on average, 100 to 150 girls return to school within a week.
3. Livelihood: Through our Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) programming, every $15.00 raised will become $100.00.
May God bless you this Christmas season.
