Sharing the birth of Jesus…

What do you think of when you hear the word “Christmas?  Are you instantly reminded of a baby born two thousand years ago?  Or gifts that you will give and receive?  Or does something else come to mind?

For me, I picture joy.  The joy of a child. The joy of my children living under my roof. The joy of children that live just minutes form me with what they think is no hope. The joy of children living halfway around the world who have become like my own. The joy of a little baby who was born to give us so much. And then, I am reminded of the gift we have been given.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ultimate GIFT our Heavenly Father gave us so sacrifically.  HE gave His only Son just so we may have life.  Life. True, unending life.  And then, I am reminded of the joy I see on the faces of little ones as they hear the words, “Jesus loves you” as I have whispered it into their little faces. And the tears come because I am reminded of what Christmas is truly about.

Jesus.  Our Jesus.  Our Savior.  Our God.

Join us this year as we bring that same Jesus to the children of Africa.  Help us bring Christmas as you sponsor a child in honor of someone else. Or share with someone that this is what you desire as your own gift. The gift of love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each sponosrship is $20 and it will provide a Christmas feast to the orphanage (or single mom) plus a new dress and shoes to each child.  Click DONATE and designate it AS NEEDED:  CHRISTMAS SPONSORHIP to sponsor your child today.  We will then mail you an envelope that you can give as a gift with a hand drawn card by Franklin Beebe, a very special young man who is living with his missionary family in Ghana.

We have 150 children in need this year.  Not only will you be giving them a Christmas gift, but also the love of Jesus.  Will you be the sponsor for just ONE?

And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger. – Luke 2:12
 
And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh. – Matthew 2:11
