Message

Christmas is a time of blessing others and being blessed with gifts and visits; a time when families and friends get together for wonderful meals, and special treats. For many, it is enjoyed with Christmas music and candlelight church services that proclaim the message of Jesus, sent to us from our loving heavenly Father, in the form of a child.

Children are important to us and to God. In North America, as in most developed countries, parents and government alike make great efforts to protect children and ensure they receive the necessities of life. Quite honestly, most of us and our children have an abundance. Although there are things that many of us would enjoy having, I can't think of anything more any of us truly need.

For so many, however, this is not the case. Multitudes of little children in third world countries live without homes, parents, or anyone to care for them. They beg or steal to survive, living on the streets, often becoming a target for the slave market where they are beaten and abused. It is unthinkable to me that little children could actually be left to fend for themselves, but it is the grim reality for so many innocent little ones, through no fault of their own.

I can't imagine a life like this for any of our children and I can't think of a better time than Christmas to help some of the world's most helpless.

Gospel for Asia has Bridge of Hope centers throughout Asia that reach out to children like these, bringing them off the streets and caring for their daily needs. Once rescued, they are given a safe environment to grow, to be educated and to experience love and hope for a future, things most of them have never known. They also learn that Jesus loves them and that people like you love them too!

Please give with a grateful heart, realizing how blessed you are, and knowing that you will be making a difference for at least one child. "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." (James 1:27)

Please join with me in bringing hope to the helpless this Christmas. May God bless you!

Street Children

Give a safe haven for vulnerable children

Many cities in Asia are rife with children who live alone on the streets. These children are vulnerable to kidnappers who sell them into bonded labor and the sex trade. Those who avoid kidnappers fall into gangs, drugs, and alcoholism. They know only distrust and pain; every day is a struggle to survive.

Your donation supports the ministry of GFA's street children homes. These homes provide the children with shelter, education, and food, as well as a message of Christ’s love.

You can change these little lives forever.
