Put Feet to Their Faith with Samaritan Purse's Gift Catalog!

if you talk to any of the children in your ministry and ask them what they would like to receive for Christmas, you would likely be hard pressed to find a child who isn't dreaming of at least one gift. So, with Christmas just around the corner it is the perfect time to talk with the children in your ministry about working together to raise money and select an gift from the Samaritan Purse Gift Catalog to send to a child or a family in need somewhere in the world! 

Just take a look at the catalog . . . you'll find items as inexpensive as feeding a hungry baby for a week for just $9 or for just $6 they can send a warm blanket or soft sleeping mat to a child/family who has experienced a disaster. One of my favorite gifts is the sheep/baby lambs for just $80 each! This makes a wonderful class project as children raise money to see how many sheep they can give so families are able to raise sheep and have wool and a food source . . . just as people did in Bible times! 

While all the items in the gift catalog are things which help children and families in need, the most important thing you are giving is the opportunity for these children and families to learn of the Greatest Gift they could ever receive . . . Jesus! As Franklin Graham says, "The Christmas gift catalog is a small window to the needs of people who face difficult and often life-threatening challenges. You will find a variety of ways your gifts can make a profound difference in the lives of those who are hurting or lost."

You, and the children in your ministry, can celebrate Christmas by giving a gift to a child/family in need and in so doing, "Put Feet to Their Faith"!
