Giving Gifts in Jesus' Name

Children living in poverty rarely—if ever—receive gifts. Let's be honest. If you're struggling to feed your family, to find clean water, and to keep a roof over your head, gifts aren't really a priority. 

One of the ways that Compassion International ministers to children in their program is by giving each child in the program a Christmas gift in the name of Jesus. These gifts are a way to show each child that someone cares about them. Plus, it's a tangible demonstration of God's love.

Many sponsors contribute an additional amount each year to help provide a Christmas gift for their sponsored child. Of course, there are some who are not able to do so. No child is ever left out, but additional funds are needed to help cover this expense. Would you consider contributing to the Christmas Gift Fund to meet this need? A gift of $20 is suggested to provide a gift for one child. 100% of contributions will be used to purchase gifts. (The deadline to give toward this year's Christmas Gift Fund is October 31.)

  1. We have been sponsoring a boy from India for about 6 years through Compassion International. It's a great organization and I can't tell you the joy it gives us to help sponsor this sweet young man. We love getting letters. I encourage everyone to go to their site and pick a precious child to sponsor. If you can't do it monthly, then you can give whatever you can, whenever and it helps them care for all the children who don't have sponsors.

    Great post!
