The American Thanksgiving holiday is over, and already the Christmas shopping season is off and running. Estimates have it that Americans spent $11.4 billion - just last Friday! That's bigger than the economies of some countries! What would happen if a fraction of that money was given to the work of God to feed and clothe people around the world? Perhaps we need to institute a Green Friday along with a Black Friday (the name in America for the day after Thanksgiving shopping frenzy), when people have a chance to give as well as shop.
As I announced last week, I have a new giving option for you. You can now make a contribution in the name of someone else, either as a gift or a memorial. I have chosen $35 since that is the amount that it takes to feed, clothe and care for one orphan for one month while they are in school. When you give, just let me know in whose name you are giving and I will send you an appropriate acknowledgment.
I have updated my website page to explain and highlight all my programs in Kenya, so you know the extent of what I and my friends like you are doing there. Once you review that page, I know you will give generously this holiday season. You can give through PayPal on my Contributions page or by sending a tax-deductible check to PurposeQuest, PO Box 8882, Pittsburgh, PA 15221-0882.
Thank you and may you and yours have a blessed holiday season as we remember the ultimate Gift - Christ and His sacrifice for us.
