Be an Angel for the Missions this Christmas
As we prepare to celebrate Christmas, offering joy and love especially to the children in our lives, we know that so many children in the world live a different reality. These vulnerable little ones too often experience dire poverty and immense suffering, endure violence or forced labor, face human trafficking and other challenges beyond their age and innocence.
But there’s hope in Sri Lanka – and you can be part of it as Christmas comes! You can send love to so many families in Batticaloa where some 300 children are doing their best to recover from physical, mental, and spiritual trauma. They are the survivors of the Easter Sunday bombings earlier this year – some injured, others alone without parents, all fearful. But thanks to the Sisters and other Church workers, there is light in the darkness of the circumstances of their lives. The children are fed and clothed, receive counseling, medical care and an education. Most importantly, they find listening hearts, loving care – and hope, hope from the Good News of Jesus’ birth, and from the reality of His love alive in their work and witness.
Your Christmas gift to a child in the missions is a blessing that brings the witness of the Gospel to vulnerable communities around the globe. Thank you!
