Christmas Gift Catalog
“I came that th may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10
Jesus’ arrival into human history and human hearts incarnated the generosity of God’s Kingdom. In the greatest expression of His grace, God sent His Son to earth to reconcile humanity and welcome us into His family. As we approach the Christmas season, we remember the joyful news first announced to shepherds in 1st-century Bethlehem. And we think of the more than two billion people who are still waiting to hear this message for the first time. Our 2018 gift catalog provides opportunities to support our partners around the world as they proclaim the Good News of Jesus and work for the physical and spiritual flourishing of their communities. From technology to oxen and school supplies to bicycles, these gifts point to the abundant life Jesus makes possible—where needs are met and hearts are made whole. Join us this Christmas as we celebrate the generosity of His Kingdom and create avenues to welcome more and more people into it.
