Christmas is all about an undeserved gift – God’s son. What better way can you celebrate Christmas and honor God than by blessing an orphan with a gift they feel like they don’t deserve? An orphan like Eli...
Eli, an eight-year-old in Kenya, was rescued from his abusive grandmother. She used to beat him and make him feed the snakes outside. He was severely malnourished, small for his age, and didn’t speak Swahili or English. When he he did speak, he stuttered severely. His mother died when he was only a baby, and he still believes she’s just on a long trip and will come back for him someday.
When you are making your Christmas giving decisions this year, and you’re deciding whether or not to give a bed or a year of school – or both! – think of Eli.
It’s kids like Eli who will receive your gifts – 100% of your support goes where you designate. It’s kids like Eli whose lives will be changed because of you. Show Eli the love of Christ this Christmas.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me... Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." -Matthew 25:35-36,40
