Many Shapes & Forms


Dear Friend, More and more I am amazed how small things can make such a change in the lives of those who have no visible resources. A gift of a blanket can save a life. Giving even a partial scholarship for a pastoral student learning the basics will transform a whole congregation. Sharing your faith with someone actually works! Not a day has gone by when there is not a person finding Christ, a pastor being equipped for his growing congregation, a Bible or portion being provided, a child being helped, a mouth being fed, a person finding hope out of hopelessness – a child, man and woman finding complete life transformation. Lives are being transformed every day - and I know of nothing more exciting. Today, I am relearning an old principle of giving as part of life – even when it means sacrifice. Our Mission: Declare the KingJesus told us as He commented dom of God in word and deed on the giving of the Pharisees to people around the world. compared to the widow. “For they have given a tiny part of their Our Vision: Challenge, inspire and equip believers to become surplus, but she, poor as she is, risk-takers for God, who radically has given everything she has.” impact the world for Jesus Christ. (Luke 21:4) Even the smallest Global Action at its core is about gift can eternally impact a life. life transformation and mobilizing people for the Kingdom. Because of Him,

Lars Dunberg President, Global Action

Global Action is an interdenominational Christian ministry based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA, as a not-for-profit charity under IRS Code section 501(c)3. Global Action receives its funding from individual donors, foundations and churches that support what God is doing through the ministry. All gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Support received beyond what is needed for any specific project will be used for other Global Action programs. Global Action is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), signifying a commitment to the highest standards of fiscal responsibility.

One of the greatest assets God has blessed us with is the partnership of friends, including dedicated national coworkers worldwide. This ministry also reflects the love and concerns of believers across the globe. Their prayerful and practical interest and investment result in us seeing God at work in such amazing and encouraging ways around the world. Thousands are involved, but the bottom line is that this is God’s Global Action.


About your gift

Q: Does the gift really end up in the hands of those who need it? A: Absolutely! We work directly with national staff in the countries in which we operate. There is no “middleman” or other impediment to delivery of the gifts purchased. How the Gift Catalog works

1

Indicate your selections on the order form provided on the envelope insert, making special note of how many gift announcements you would like to receive.

2 3

Return the order form with your check or credit card information for the total amount.

You may order over the phone at 1-888-725-3707. Or go to www.globalaction.com, click on “Get Involved”, and choose “Gift Catalog Donation” to make your selections. As you look over the catalog, prayerfully ask God to guide you to the gifts He wants you to provide. Each gift will proclaim Christ’s presence to someone who does not know Him, or to a brother or sister in Christ who needs encouragement and assistance. If you wish to honor a friend or loved one by giving a gift in their name, please make a note of this on the order form. Global Action will be happy to send you appropriate announcement cards to help you commemorate the occasion!

“If you help the poor, yo u are lending to the Lord… and He will repay you.” —Proverbs 19:17

Q: What percentage of my gift stays with you? A: Although we do have to maintain minimum funding for operating expenses, our last independent audit showed that $ .82 of each dollar goes to the projects. Q: What can I do more than give? A: You can pray! Let the Lord show you where you can serve. There are many opportunities. You can be an ambassador for Global Action, telling others about the work, speaking to groups when opportunities arise, or hosting meetings in your home. You could also distribute printed information on Global Action, or you could go on a trip to visit the work depicted on these pages. I promise you will never be the same. Q: Some of these projects are huge. Can I give a portion of a project? A: Of course. Any amount to any project is welcome, and will be gratefully used toward that project.
