In every country we serve, wherever we look, we can see challenges, hardship, suffering. Yet, right there in the midst of it all, we see something else: radiant faces driving powerful life-change, beacons of comfort and relief in the midst of affliction. You see, GFA World missionaries have had manifold opportunities to extend a helping hand, expressing Christ’s love in tangible ways, through the support of our donors and sponsors.
Our ministry’s approach to give this message of hope has been modeled after Christ and His Apostles, which we see in the Holy Scriptures and throughout Church history. The Lord Jesus was incarnated in humanity and lived in a community to redeem all of mankind (see John 1:14). After He ascended into heaven, the Apostles went to other communities with the message of hope, ministering to people through word and deed—and the world was turned upside down!
That’s why our dedicated missionaries go to communities and care for emotional and physical needs. They bring the message of hope through Christ, often in tandem with life-changing gifts provided through this catalogue. Each gift illustrates the wondrous love demonstrated by the Nativity.
This year, as you prepare to celebrate the greatest Gift of all, please consider sharing a compassionate gift with families in some of the most destitute communities of Asia and Africa. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, may God bless you with great joy and a fresh sense of His love this Christmas season.
