Alternative Christmas Gifts
Food Parcel for Iraqi Christian Refugee Family in Jordan
When ISIS invaded northern Iraq in 2014, both Muslim and Christian families fled for their lives. Many Christian families ended up in neighboring Jordan. Today, many remain there awaiting resettlement by the UNHCR, the UN program pro- tecting and supporting refugees. Because they are refugees awaiting resettlement, they do not work and thus are without income. Your gift of $26 for a food parcel will provide needed foods like rice, oil, sugar, pasta, tuna, tomato sauce, canned meat, beans and tea for Iraqi Christians to feed them for approximately one week.
Buckets for Cistern Construction
Running water is a luxury in the Mexican Yucatan. Our missionaries, Todd and Maria Luke, help families and villages in Campeche build cisterns to capture rain water for use in their homes, to water the livestock, and to irrigate their crops. It’s truly life giving. Cisterns are built of concrete, hand mixed and poured from five gallon buckets. About 17 buckets are used to complete the work. Each bucket is $3. Help bring lifesaving water to a family in Mexico by giving a set of buckets for $51.
Kindle for Linda Ross Library
Stu Ross and his late wife, Linda, coordinated mission projects in Kenya for many years. Their work included building churches, schools, girls’ rescue centers and managing water projects. Stu continues their work in Kenya and is honoring Linda’s love for young school girls there by building libraries in her name. Linda's Library at Grace Girls’ High School was dedicated in September and has five Kindles for the girls to access electronic versions of books not available in the library. Stu would like to have an additional 20 Kindles for this library. Each Kindle is $119.
