Make a Global Impact with your Christmas Gifts

Posted on Posted in News, Proskuneo School of the Arts

The perfect gift…

It really is hard to find gifts for people who already have so much. For a number of years, with some of my family, we have given each other Christmas gifts of a different kind. We have looked for needs in our world, and have given each other the gift of meeting those needs. One year, I opened up a gift that said that in my name a new bicycle was given to a boy in our town who had none. Another year, I wrapped up a card saying that I had donated a goat to some farmers in Uganda on behalf of my loved one. I am inviting you in to this kind of giving this Christmas. Rather than buying something that you are not sure your dad (sister, friend, teacher, pastor, etc) will want, and you are quite sure they don’t need, why not consider giving some gifts that will make a global impact? For each gift that you give, we will email you a card that you can print out to let your loved one know what was given in their name. Here are a couple of options below:

People who pour into others need to take a break from pouring out, and need to be poured into!!

A team from Proskuneo Ministries has been asked to come minister at the New Tribes (http://usa.ntm.org/) Mission Field Conference outside of Manila, in the Philippines in January 2013. We will be leading the adults in worship and ministering to about 70 children and teens. We will also, of course, be loving on the missionaries and seeking to encourage them and build them up.

We still lack $5865 to purchase plane tickets (we are less than a month away!) and we lack $500 more to completely finance the trip.

People from war-torn countries, who have been persecuted because of their ethnicity or their faith. People who have tremendous talent and potential in the arts, but have no way to develop it. People who desperately need a safe place to express their thoughts and feelings.

These are the people who need scholarships to be able to attend our Proskuneo School of the Arts. $80/month scholarships one student for weekly hour-long private lessons where he/she will receive one-on-one attention, training, and the good news of Jesus Christ. $600 keeps our school open for an entire month. A gift of any size will bless many.
