The Christmas season is one of great joy and anticipation. With hopeful hearts, we prepare to give gifts, make plans to see family members, and ready our hearts to treasure, once again, the birth of our Lord and Savior. At Compelled (iET), we share a collective sense of hope and a renewed passion to bring the gospel across Asia and beyond. The Christmas season also provides an opportunity for us to plant seeds of joy and hope in the hearts of our missionaries, children and orphans, as we seek to meet their needs and encourage their spirits.
To this end, we welcome you to consider participating in one or more of the following opportunities this holiday:
CHRISTMAS MEAL FOR ORPHANS: On Christmas Eve, we wish to provide a Christmas meal, complete with fruits and sweets, to all of our 500 children housed in IET’s orphanages. It costs roughly $3per child to provide a Christmas meal. For an additional $9per child, you can bless these little ones with a small Christmas gift. In sum, for $12per child, you can donate a meal and a gift, making this Christmas a truly meaning one for a child in need.
SCRIPTURE PORTION:We have seen tens of thousands of people come to Christ by reading the word of God. There are scores of IET missionaries who found Christ through reading a portion of the Bible, and they have, in turn, led thousands to Christ. This Christmas season, we invite you to provide Bibles and gospel portions to the people of South Asia. The cost of one Bible is just under $3, and a New Testament is only $0.40. To involve your entire family in celebrating with IET, this is a great, inexpensive donation option for young children to consider.
BICYCLE: A bicycle is a huge blessing for a missionary who is working in remote villages, saving substantial time and energy.Having a bicycle enables a missionary to cover more ground than possible on foot and, therefore, reach more souls with the gospel. You can bless a missionary this Christmas with a bicycle by donating $80.
Motorcycle: Traveling from one village to another to supervise the work of the missionaries–giving them support and encouragement on a regular basis–is the main work of our leaders. Having a motorcycle enables a leader to go farther and faster daily. Motorized vehicles also ensure leaders arrive safely back home by evening, after day trips through remote and hilly areas. For $900 you can bless a leader by providing a motorcycle this Christmas.
DUCKS: Chickens or ducks be a wonderful Christmas gift for the children in our homes. As each child takes care of a chicken, they learn responsibility and resourcefulness. When the chickens lay eggs, the children have an inexpensive, essential source of nourishment and nutrients. Additionally, children can sell eggs at local markets to generate income for their future needs. For $10, you can provide two chickens–feathered companions and an indispensable resource to the children.
Thank you for considering these requests as you celebrate the holidays with friends and family both near and far. We are honored to share this season of joy and anticipation with you. Wishing you a Merry Christmas, and to God be the glory!
