A simple gift from you can make an eternal difference for others

Christmas is the time of year when we’re reminded of the good tidings of great joy that brought us the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. Faithful Christians around the world are dedicated to making this Good News known in hard-to-reach areas. By providing them with the right tools and materials, we can help these steadfast men and women sow seeds for a Gospel harvest. Here are three gifts you can give this Christmas that will help believers share and people hear the life-giving message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

1. Train & Equip an Evangelist

Throughout the world, Christians face attacks on the truth through persecution, the influence of cults and other religions, and lack of access to solid Biblical teaching. But now, training future generations of teachers and evangelists is possible in even the hardest-to-reach places. For $35, we can offer advanced Bible classes for local pastors or supply evangelists with audio and video equipment so they can be lights in the darkness.

2. Give Bikes & Vehicles for Missions

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings Good News…” (Isaiah 52:7a, NKJV). But many need wheels to get them there. The world is full of remote villages and towns where traveling by foot can take hours and even days. And in many parts of the world, owning and maintaining a vehicle is too expensive. For $100, we can give a bike or other transportation to an evangelist to help him or her take the Good News of Jesus Christ to people who have not heard it before.

3. Provide Bibles & Christian Literature

Many in the English-speaking western world have access to several copies of Bibles and other Christian literature. But in many cultures and languages, the Bible and study materials are not readily available for people hungry for the truth of God’s Word. For $15, we can provide communities with the Word of God in their local language.
