Have you checked out the Compassion International Gift Catalog yet? You can buy gifts for children or families in need like mosquito nets, safe drinking water, livestock and bicycles. Compassion will tell you how much each item will cost and you just have to buy it. Click on the link above to check out the various items that you can buy.
Just think of how special this Christmas will be for these families when they receive a new goat so that they can sell its milk to earn a living? Or a bicycle that will get the children to school each day? Or how about just sponsoring a child for $38 a month and providing medical checkups, healthy meals, annual Christmas gifts, and the chance to build a long-lasting relationship? Just know that whether you decide to send a one-time gift or sponsor a child, you are making a HUGE difference in their life. Compassion focuses on raising a child out of poverty in Jesus' name. Even though you are providing food and education for them, you are giving them a way to eternal life with our Savoir too. And that is what Christmas is all about.
Would you like to do that? Would you like to make an impact in a child's life?
There's one more thing that I'd like for Christmas this year. I've already mentioned it several times on my blog and also on my Facebook page.
I signed up for the June 2015 trip to Honduras to finally meet Fadi and Ali. Right now, I'm in the process of raising the money to go. The trip will cost $2,600 for the plane travels, hotel stay, meals, translator and transportation for the sponsored kids. I'm trying to raise an extra $900 to pay for my flights to Florida and also to buy special goodies for my kids.

I hope all of you have a very merry Christmas this year! Don't forget the reason for the season!
