If you’ve followed here for awhile, you know how passionate I am about South Africa and the ministry there (Take Action Ministry) that you all help to fund by visiting this site on a regular basis (thank you so much!)
Take Action Ministry is a registered non-profit organization based in South Africa and run by the locals there. They have 17 different Partner Centres that reach some of the most vulnerable children there — many who come from child-headed households. The Centres provide food, tutoring, and a safe place for kids to go to after school (or during school for the toddlers and babies). Most of all, they teach kids about Jesus and help them learn character and a strong work ethic.
We’ve gotten to go and visit many of these Centres and see the work they are doing and spend time with the children and care-givers. Understanding just how much of a difference they are making is the reason we give a big portion of our personal income to help fund this ministry.
How you can make a difference in lives of children in South Africa!
I wanted to invite you to be involved in the work they are doing this Christmas. These 17 Centres reach and impact around 1000 children and we’d like to partner with Take Action Ministry to provide a small gift bag to each of these 1000 children for Christmas.
Each gift bag will include a toothbrush, toothpaste, a face cloth, a bar of soap, a small toy, a package of candy, and a stationery pack. I can only imagine how much these children’s faces are going to light up with joy and delight when they realize they all get their own Christmas gift bags!!
Give $10 = Bring So Much Joy to a Child
The gift bags will cost $10 each in US dollars and Take Action Ministry is hoping to raise enough donations in the next few weeks to buy 1000 gift bags.
Would you pray about donating $10 (or more!) to provide a gift bag for one of these children — and to bring so much joy to them this Christmas? Or maybe your kids would like to come up with creative ways to earn money to pay for a Christmas bag for a child in South Africa? I can’t wait to hear what you come up with.
Thank you, in advance, for being part of this special opportunity!
