Many people have yet to hear the wonderful story of Christ’s birth. Through these gifts, you can enable national missionaries to do even more to serve their communities and give others the chance to hear about Jesus, grow in Him and praise Him in a local fellowship. Through you, many will get the chance to know and worship our Saviour!
A motorcycle enables a pastor to serve distant fellowships, giving people the leadership, counsel and prayer they need to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
“I donated as a Christmas gift for my dad. He has everything he needs and enjoys seeing the money I would spend on him go to a better cause.” —John, a donor in Minnesota
Harsh winters force many people indoors, hindering villagers from finding jobs and limiting pastors’ ability to minister. Winter clothing packets help GFA missionaries stay healthy and able to minister during cold seasons. Winter clothing distributed to the poor protects the vulnerable from freezing cold.
Depending on the region, a winter clothing packet may include:
“These days, cold is increasing rapidly. I received warm clothes at the right time. … I am sure [the clothes] will keep my body warm. I am thankful … for the love that is shown to me.” —Sister Paisli, a national missionary
Bicycles help national missionaries save time, energy and transportation expenses, dramatically increasing their ability to minister. These sturdy bicycles enable national missionaries to respond quickly to people asking for prayer and to carry the news of Christ farther and faster.
“Sometimes I was not able to reach my destination traveling by bus, as the road was broken on the way. I had to return back. But with the bicycle, I am able to cross any such hurdles and reach my destination.”
—GFA national missionary
Fledgling congregations often lack a permanent structure to use for worship services, which exposes them to a host of problems. Their meetings—and ministries—are also hindered simply because they do not have space to gather as a church family. Your gift helps us to build and repair buildings. Even a gift of $80 can help provide decades of safer worship; with others sharing the cost, a church can be built!
A place of worship:
A permanent place of worship varies in costs to construct, depending on size, location and available materials.
“Church is a place where I come to worship the Lord after a whole week of toil. Church is a very special place, and the new building has made it more special, and I am very happy.” —Sinjin, a believer whose congregation received a new building in place of its old, overcrowded one
