Ready To Shop?
If you are trying to break out of the rut of a materialistic Christmas, I would like to recommend to you Gospel for Asia.
Gospel for Asia (or GFA) is a ministry that builds support for indigenous Asian missionaries. Native missionaries are extraordinarily effective since they have already mastered the languages and nuances of their cultures. Today, over 85 percent of Asian countries do not allow western missionaries to come and freely preach the Gospel and plant churches. These brothers and sisters in Christ live purposefully at the level of their neighbors, often in severe poverty, all for the sake of the Gospel. GFA passes on 100% of your donations directly to the missionaries or the cause that you designate.
For an eye opening experience, take a peek through the GFA Christmas catalogue at http://gfa.org/gift. Here you can find water purifiers, water buffaloes, wells and a spring of life overflowing.
This Christmas, please bust traditional self-gratification and buy an Asian a chicken! Such a small gift will be an incredible blessing! A great legacy to give to your children...
