Put Feet to Their Faith With the Samaritan's Purse Gift Catalog!

Thanksgiving is this week and at my house as soon as dinner is over, the Christmas tree goes up and the gifts go under the tree! I love Christmas and I love giving gifts! It is pretty safe to say the children in your ministry likely love Christmas and receiving gifts, too, so this year help the children in your ministry shift their focus from receiving gifts to giving gifts with Samaritan's Purse Gift Catalog

I love the Samaritan's Purse Gift Catalog . . . for as little as $5 the children in your ministry can send gifts to children and families in need and in so doing, "put feet to their faith" as they focus on giving and sharing the Good News of Jesus with children and families around the world! 

So . . . what gifts could the children in your ministry give? Consider the following . . . 

  • Gift 36 - Sheep - Sheep and baby lambs are mentioned over 400 times in the Bible, more than any other animal. Centuries later, sheep are still prized as a dependable source of thick wool that can be used to make warm clothing or be sold for extra income. Samaritan’s Purse not only provides the sheep for impoverished families, but we also teach them how to vaccinate, feed, and care for their flock. In the process, it’s natural to weave in the teachings of Jesus, who said, “I am the good shepherd, I know My sheep and My sheep know Me” (John 10:14, NIV). For $80, we can provide a sheep to a family in need.
  • Gift 11 - Hot Meals - A savory stew or fresh-baked bread needs no advertisement—the aroma speaks for itself. When Samaritan’s Purse supplies food to community kitchens, we enable them to reach out to malnourished children and impoverished families in the Name of Jesus. “For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing” (2 Corinthians 2:15, NIV). A gift of $7 can furnish a week’s worth of hot meals.
So, take a moment to look through the Samaritan's Purse Gift Catalog and select at least one project for the children in your ministry so this Christmas they can focus on giving to others and on sharing the Greatest Gift ever . . . Jesus with children and families in need around the world!
