I am asking you to uplift your missionary this Christmas by giving a special gift and writing a note of encouragement today. THANK YOU for being their partner and thinking of them during this season when we gather with friends and family. When familiar sights and sounds bring joy, please continue to pray for them and their loved ones. Pray for the peace, protection, and contentment that only comes from Jesus. Pray for their continued joy and boldness in sharing the message of Jesus this Christmas.
Missionaries do what few of us could. They leave their lives of familiarity and comfort. They leave their families and friends. They pack their bags, leave their home, and move to unfamiliar places to love people they don't yet know. They commit their life so that others can have life! Your missionary is instrumental in serving those on the field, and YOU help make what they do(es) possible. Thank you!
Being a missionary at Christmas is an opportunity to share God's love and the true meaning of the birth of Jesus. It's a perfect time to demonstrate the Gospel message with people in need. It's a season to celebrate with non-believers and share the story of our Savior's birth; a time to connect with a neighbor and care for them in special ways. You can be sure your missionaries will be encouraging people with the gift of God's love this Christmas. Will you please join me and encourage them with an extra financial gift for their ministry today? Your love and generosity will do eternal good as your missionaries continue(s) to use every opportunity to proclaim Christ and share the light of Christmas.
In addition, I'm asking for your written words of encouragement. A simple note from you only takes a minute, but it can have a great and lasting impact. Will you help us encourage your missionaries by writing a special note with your year-end gift?
I know from experience your notes will be stored away to read during times of exhaustion and feeling overwhelmed. Your words really will help your missionaries feel loved on days of discouragement or loneliness. And your financial gift will help free them to stay focused on Jesus in the midst of the hectic Holidays.
Thank you again for your ongoing support and encouragement. You are making an impact for the Kingdom of God on people around the world. And in my opinion that makes you a hero!
