Last year our family decided to save up so we could buy a “birthday gift for Jesus.” At Christmas-time we used our boys’ savings and our own to buy food baskets to share with some unsaved families we know who also don’t have much money for themselves. It was a great experience and I’m sure we’ll enjoy giving again this year.
If you and and/or your family would like some ideas for giving at this time of year, please consider the many projects sponsored through CAM International throughout Latin America. The gifts are monetary but funds are translated into very real and tangible items used in ministries of all kinds. There are dozens and dozens of projects, and you may find a particular need that touches your heart.
We were in the U.S. and traveling during the time that these projects were submitted. At the time we couldn’t think of anything to submit even though we knew there must be items we could use in our ministry here. We do have some special needs in our ministry and we’d be happy to share those with you if you’re interested. Send us an email if you’d like to know more. I may even post a list here on the blog.
Thanks…and we hope you’ll take some time to visit the Christmas at CAM website for many opportunities that will “touch the world, one life at a time.”
