JOIN US IN OUR CHRISTMAS OUTREACH 2017 TO FORGOTTEN PEOPLE
Dear Friends of ACTION,
One of our mission’s signature outreaches is in the planning stages as I write to you – our traditional Christmas parties.
While the program varies slightly from country to country, it usually includes a special Christmas meal, a carol sing, games, and a gift for each one attending. The parties are for children in crisis and their families, prisoners, victims of natural disasters and the rural and urban poor. They provide fun and fellowship to forgotten people who would otherwise not experience a meaningful Christmas.
Typically, those who attend are viewed as trash by society or are invisible as they blend into the background noise and filth of the city. For many, it is their first time to attend a party hosted by loving people who want to know them by name. Each person has the opportunity to make new friends and simply feel loved. These events are springboards for church planting, leadership development, youth and children’s outreach and ministry to widows and orphans.
We are sending this out to you way before you are in the Christmas spirit so that we can gather the funds and send them overseas before the season is actually upon us.
Our Filipina missionary in Colombia, Raquel de Jesús, wrote,
“We have seen the long-term benefit of evangelistic Christmas events, having started the ministry center in 2003 right after one of those parties. Some of those who surrendered their lives to the Lord then are now leaders, helping me in the ministry in so many ways.”
Please peruse the reverse side of this letter to see the highlights of last year’s program. Our budget this year is $50,000 and this will be divided among 16 of our fields. Our sister offices in Alberta and England will also help raise funds toward this amount.
Thank you for your consideration. Please do what you can to help our missionaries end the year with this wonderful ministry. And have a very meaningful holiday season to you with your own family and church!
Putting Christ in Christmas with you,
Rex Lee Carlaw
