Individuals and families who want to help a child or family in need this Christmas can purchase a Global Gift from American Baptist International Ministries (IM) 2012 Global Gift wish list.
This year’s wish list includes meaningful gifts that would bring a smile to the face of many on a Christmas shopping list, including nieces, nephews, coaches, Sunday school teachers, librarians, favorite aunts and uncles, hairdressers, and so many others.
Each gift is fun to give and very much needed somewhere in the world. Gift-givers may choose from among 20 different items, including: a pig for a child in Haiti ($60)… personal hygiene kits for maids imprisoned in Lebanon (three for $90)… four books for a classroom in Japan ($100)… hot lunches for one preschooler for a year in Thailand ($160). A family or group may even want to chip in to sponsor a worthy student for a year in a seminary in Costa Rica ($4,210). What a wonderful way to demonstrate Christ’s desire to give and to receive love!
Gifts are available starting at $28. The complete wish list can be found at on the Global Gifts page. Each gift has been selected by a missionary or partner because they know the deepest needs and desires of the people they serve. The Global Gift program also invites gifts for individual IM missionaries, or to help those who are in greatest need as determined by IM.
This year gift-givers can download a Global Gifts Bring Blessing Certificate to present to the recipient informing them of the gift purchased in their honor. Gift choices must be made by December 31, 2012.For more information, contact Catherine Nold: Catherine.email@example.com.
