Joy of Christmas - sharing the love of Christ
Following the success of last year’s Christmas card project, we are pleased to inform you that the profits this year will support the ‘Joy of Christmas’ project. This is a ministry undertaken by our partners in Central Asia to distribute gifts to underprivileged and poor children in Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. For many this will be the only present they will receive throughout the Christmas season.
Christians have long had a concern for underprivileged children in Central Asia. Frequent reports speak of the numbers of such children increasing and of them living in very poor conditions or simply abandoned by their parents who are no longer able to support them. In such an environment, churches are seeking to help and show the love of Christ in a variety of ways. Such ministries continue throughout the year, but at Christmas a special effort is made to celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ into the world by the giving of presents to those who are in real need. In doing so, relationships are built, suspicions overcome and opportunities afforded to teach nominal Muslims the true meaning of Christ’s birth.
The cards are 210x99mm and come in packs of 12 (6 each of 2 designs). Inside each card is a scripture verse, a verse from a well known Christmas carol and a greeting message. Each pack of 12 costs £3 + p&p and can be purchased by contacting our office on 01323 725583 or through this website by following this link
Join us in supporting this vital ministry by purchasing Christmas cards from SGA. It is a wonderful opportunity to be part of the work of God in Central Asia as we celebrate our Saviour’s birth.
