“‘I am the Lord’s servant,’ Mary answered. ‘May your word to me be fulfilled.’” Luke 1:38 (NIV)
Mary was given a mission to bring into the world a child, Jesus, who would redeem all mankind. Today, God is still calling Christians to be faithful to continue the mission and bring Jesus Christ to villages in every corner of the world. Many of them, like Mary, are willing servants, but they need your prayers and support to answer God’s call.
We have an amazing new opportunity for you to help volunteers in the Philippines continue the mission and reach twice as many children! Now through Dec. 31, gifts for the Values Education ministry will be matched. For every $40 donated, two public school classrooms will be reached with the redeeming love of Jesus!
God is moving powerfully, transforming young lives. For example, the mother of a boy expelled from school multiple times begged the principal to at least allow her son to attend the new Values Education class. The principal reluctantly agreed. Surprisingly, he listened carefully and would volunteer to read aloud from the Bible or write verses on the blackboard. He gave his life to Jesus, and his behavior changed so dramatically that he was allowed back in school!
In the last five years alone, over 300,000 Filipino children’s lives have been transformed by the presence of Jesus in their classrooms! The only thing preventing expansion into new schools is funding. This Christmas, will you help share the love of Jesus with eager young hearts? Remember, gifts totaling up to $15,000, given by Dec. 31, will be matched to reach twice as many classrooms with the power of the Gospel!
