Gift Guide 2013/2014
Recently, someone asked, what Eurovangelism meant by our statement, "Your partners in Missions?" In an effort to explain, I cited some examples. In a small town in Southern Ontario, there are two little churches with big hearts who partner with us. When they learned that there are Roma children in Romania who live in huts heated by burning plastic, and that they have little-to-no footwear or clothing to get through the winter, they were moved to do something about it. They decided to sew, knit, and collect clothing, donating all to Eurovangelism/EuroAid to distribute. Most recently, in their Sunday school, while being taught the principles of Proverbs 19:17 "Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord…" they purchased school supplies for children who would normally have to do without.
Eurovangelism witnesses firsthand the displaced, exploited and vulnerable of the Eastern Countries in Europe, as well as Russia. We are able to make those needs known to you here in Canada. When we see the gratefulness and tears of relief when they receive your gifts of love, we receive many hugs. These are your hugs that we are blessed to receive. This, in part, is what "your partners in missions" means.
It is our prayer again this year, here at Eurovangelism, that this 2013-2014 Gift Guide will help us all, throughout the year, to remember the often overlooked needs. Will you partner with us to help us meet some of those needs? It does not take much, whether it is a Bible, a pair of shoes, firewood or health care. Or maybe you can help us with the cost of our humanitarian aid shipment? Thank you in advance for your loving, crucial partnership.
May our Lord continue to bless you as you help bring light to an often overlooked acre of the mission field.
