A GIFT FOR JESUS


What if you didn’t have enough food to eat or a warm place to sleep? What if you wanted to go to school but you couldn’t afford it because you didn’t have money for books, uniforms, or fees? These scenarios occur every day all over our world. But you can make a difference. You can pray that God will help our missionaries as they help people around the world. You can also give money for missions through BGMC. This holiday season, we are challenging kids and their families to pick one or more of these special projects and raise the money for BGMC in order to help needy people around the world. What can God do through you and your family this Christmas season? Set a goal, ask God to help you, work hard, and do something amazing for God!
