For some children, this could be the first time they’ve ever had a special Christmas gift just for them.
or each $20 towards a Christmas gift that Good Life Ministries receives, our staff in India will choose a special present for each boy and girl. Gifts include items that the children are needing such as a book bag, a sweater, blankets, school supplies, or a plate and cup. They also include fun things like hair accessories for girls, ear muffs for boys, and toys for everyone. We make sure the pack is stuffed completely full.
It’s more than just about the gifts. At the program where the gifts are distributed, the Christmas story and the Gospel is presented to the children and their parents in an exciting and dramatic presentation.
And, as you can imagine, the parents are just as grateful for your gift as the children are.
So, why don’t you consider starting a new Christmas tradition this year. Maybe rethink what “gift giving and receiving” means. Maybe you can make it a family project. And, maybe while shopping for presents for your loved ones, consider giving a few of those dollars to brighten the life of a poor child in India.
This year, more than ever, the children in India need you. You can bless a child who might otherwise get nothing this year. Your gift can show the love of Jesus to some of the world’s poorest children.
In case the funds exceed the projects described here, we will use the money where needed most.
