As Christmas approaches, the time of year when we rejoice in the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, it is easy to get side-tracked by our society’s emphasis on consumerism and materialism. Even exchanging gifts can become a competition and a burden instead of a delight and joy. So much money is spent on unwanted gifts for family and friends, gifts that may be discarded as soon as they are unwrapped.
But we have another family – our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters – who are in desperate need. They would not throw away a gift sent to bring them relief as they live day by day with pressure, injustice and even violence. They would value it highly, and be encouraged to know that fellow-Christians far away had remembered them and sent help.
Will you give a Christmas present to your Christian family suffering for the Lord? Choose a gift from the range below. Or you could give a gift to our General Fund to be used wherever the need is greatest.
Perhaps someone you normally buy a present for would prefer that you helped someone else so much needier. We will send you a card that you can pass on to the person, to let them know where their Christmas present has gone this year.
Would you like to give an alternative Christmas gift to a loved one this year? We will send you an attractive “Thank you” card, which you can send to the person on whose behalf you have made the donation.
