£50 will provide vital help for a widow this winter!
In Central Asia, the term widow sometimes
takes on a different meaning. Some young women are converted to Christ from Islam and are therefore abandoned by their husbands and disowned by their families. For this reason
such ‘widows’ are also included in our Widows' Project.
Joy of Christmas Project
Can you imagine a child receiving no gift at Christmas? Sadly, for many in Central Asia this is true, but with your help we can make a difference!
‘Joy of Christmas Project’ provides Christmas gifts for vulnerable children. The gifts include: essential daily items, toys and sweets. But this project offers much more… An opportunity to share about the greatest gift – God’s gift of eternal life! The gifts are presented in an attractive purpose designed box which illustrates the Christmas narrative.
Before the gifts are distributed, opportunity is taken to share the real message of Christmas with many who do not know the Bible’s story of Christ’s birth.
At one of the presentations, a little boy called Vadim was sitting in the front row. He was very attentive to what was happening during the programme. Afterwards everybody was given an opportunity to pray. Vadim’s prayer was not lengthy, but profound!
‘Thank you, Lord, for the best day in my life’.
One team member said, ‘It was all worth travelling 500 miles to hear this prayer’.
Children can experience the joy of receiving a gift and hear about the real meaning of Christmas.
