Bibles for New Christians
$10

The Bible is a powerful tool in leading people to Christ and the foundation for growing in the faith for every Christian. But in many places Bibles are not available or are too expensive to obtain. It is especially important that new Christians have access to God’s Word in their own heart language. Your gift of $10 can provide a Bible to a new Christian in any of several strategic places including China (Study Bibles), Africa (Audio Bibles), Egypt (through the Bible Society of Egypt), and more. Give the precious gift of a Bible this Christmas.

School Materials for Community Schools in Zambia
$50

There are 32 community schools for orphaned and vulnerable children managed by the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian Synod of Zambia. More than 5,800 children are supervised by over 120 volunteer teachers. Many classes use church buildings but lack furniture such as desks and other basic material. Priority needs for this program include teacher’s stipends/incentives, teaching materials and text books, classroom furniture, sanitation and scholarship support. This program educates children who would not be able go to regular schools due to financial constraints. Education is the key to fighting poverty, which drives most children to the streets.
