Praise God that both our ministers Jeddy and Greg have returned safely from their vision trip to Africa with World Vision! Stay tuned for Greg’s last testimony! As the holiday season is here and we are getting into our shopping modes, we’d like to share with you World Vision’s Gift Catalog.
This holiday season, we are challenging you to rethink your holiday shopping with World Vision’s Gift Catalog where ONE gift can bless not just one person, but COMMUNITIES and GENERATIONS. You can add these things on your wish lists or you can purchase gifts on behalf of your loved ones!
Whether you agree with the 99% or the 1%, the truth is that you, sitting here and reading this, are greatly privileged. We all have issues, but surely they don’t come down to starvation or death from easily treatable diseases.
Just think about it, do you really need that new sweater? New bag? New toy? Instead of asking for or buying any new one thing, use that same amount of money to buy food, medicine, clothes, clean water, education, or an animal for needy communities all over the world, even in the U.S.!
He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward him for what he has done. (Proverbs 19:17)
The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me…whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.” (Matthew 25:31-46)
So, before you make your next purchase. Think about it a little longer. Consider how you can bless others and give with a joyful and willing heart.
God bless and happy holidays!
