Christmas is coming soon! The little guy pictured here was not sure what to do with this little package. He had never received a gift before – for any reason. Last year, during our Christmas celebration in the Philippines, it was fun showing him how to get into it and convincing him that the present was his to keep.
The family of this boy is very poor. Christmas is just another day. No presents. No stockings. No Christmas dinner. If he is lucky, there is a little rice to fill his empty belly.
If you send a donation to Fullness in Christ Ministries (FCM) to provide Christmas for our children in the Philippines, what do we do with it? Our Christmas blessing includes a gift for every sponsored child (all 821 of them) plus their siblings (and some have several siblings who are not sponsored.) We will also provide something special to eat, either at a Christmas meal at the church or for them to take home. It is a big vision, but we have a great big God.
You can send your donation online to the Christmas for Children fund via the FCM website. Donations for Christmas need to be received before Thanksgiving, so that we can send the money the first week of December to the pastors who care for the children. Thank you for all of the blessings that you have made possible for these children.
If you are interested in investing in the life of a very poor child, let me know, or check out the Fullness in Christ Ministries website at http://fullnessinchristministries.org.
