Each year, usually in July, we begin working to make Christmas special for orphaned children along our southern border with Mexico. Many of these kids have little reason to look forward to Christmas, but we are striving to change that. Our annual goal is to provide Christmas packages for 250 or more children. Each package will contain new toys, a coloring book or notepad, crayons or markers, and some candy. In addition, we hope to also provide a children’s Bible or New Testament in English or Spanish as determined by the child’s native language. This may seem like a huge task, but the need is great. Please help by becoming a “Christmas Angel” for the children by providing toy(s) and a donation for the candy and Bibles, which will be purchased in bulk. Each month, starting in July, we will be collecting particular items, like balls or new stuffed toys. Be watching for announcements with details regarding what items we are collecting each month. May God bless all our “Christmas Angels” and all orphaned children this Christmas. Come Grow with Us!
