A Gift of Hope for us and from us

A Gift of Hope for us and from us

0


Christmas is almost a month away,
 but we all are already
waiting for it. Advent is an opportunity to prepare ourselves for the
celebration of Christmas, and to accept and experience Christ as the greatest
gift. So it is about our Christmas. But it is also an opportunity to prepare
our gifts and share them with those in need.
These days of the first week
of Advent, we are thinking and talking about Hope. This is a gift of God to
everyone, not just to us. Having received it, we are called to share it.
That’s
why this Christmas season, our young  School Without Walls leaders
throughout Eurasia are preparing to share the hope of Jesus with
80,000 boys and girls in need through
our Gift of Hope outreach. Each Gift of Hope box
is filled to the brim with love, warm mittens or socks, treats, toys, school
supplies, and a children’s Bible or Scripture piece that shares the message of
Jesus. Our leaders personally deliver each gift as they proclaim the
Good News and develop life-changing friendships with Eurasia’s most needy young
ones—orphans, refugees, children with special needs, and unreached children
It
is the greatest privilege — together with students and graduates of our School
Without Walls to collect and deliver these gifts, passing along with them a
piece of your heart. At the beginning of the new year I hope to be in Moldova
and Ukraine to lead several training meetings for our leaders, and then work
together with them in the forgotten towns and villages among orphans and
refugees, among poverty and despair.
We
need your prayers and full support! Please pray for my trip and for my family
left without me during the trip. And especially pray for the children whom we
will serve so that the Hope of God, who is born in us, will settle in their
hearts in order to change everything in their lives forever.
Our
family is grateful to you for your support and looks forward to being partners
with you in the Mission of God next year!
Christ
is born! Praise Him!
