Dearest Friends and Prayer Warriors,
With thankful hearts, we wanted to send love and blessings to our global family! Many of our supporters from America will be celebrating Thanksgiving this week- a holiday that really should be everyday, aye?
Be joyful always, pray continually, and GIVE THANKS in all circumstances, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus! 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
“Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest people; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude.” E.P. Powell
“Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.” W.J. Cameron
Amen and amen! We also wanted to share this video highlighting the Christmas Sponsorship program with everyone!
There is some great Johanna Joy footage in the video for all the JoJo fans:)
As we shared in our last newsletter, we are looking for churches or small groups (even individuals) to help sponsor the upcoming Christmas outreaches! In addition to all the fun stuff we have at MCV, we will be hosting two large Christmas parties for children in our Extend Care program (orphaned children taken in by extended family or the local church). We also follow up with home visits where we give gifts, special prayer, etc. We also hope to reach out to the child headed homes within the community (older children taking care of younger siblings)….So we need lots and lots of sponsors!
For $20 (US dollars), our team can buy an age appropriate toy/gift and item of new clothing.
Please be in touch with us ASAP if you are interested in sponsoring a child or group of children! Sponsorship monies need to be sent to MIA with a note in byline “MCV Christmas.”
