November is here, which means it is time to start breaking out the snow makers and make some snow angels in Los Angeles.
Or, more accurately it is time to start spending lots of money on all of those family members. With how much marketing is put into Christmas it is no wonder that we are so focused on buying each other gifts to fill up the stockings and line the trees with.
But this year try to do something a little different. Give just a little bit of your money to help people in other countries who have almost nothing and will likely get nothing for Christmas.
Yes, you heard me right, a camel.
Gospel for Asia has a donation program allowing you to help buy livestock for villages in need (along with a ton of other cool ministry opportunities). For only $345, the cost of 23 people subscribing to World of Warcraft for a month, or the cost of a single Xbox 360, we can purchase a camel for a village in Rajasthan, India.
Camels can be used to transport up to 330 pounds of goods across the sandy deserts that jeeps have a hard time getting through, and when they get to their destination they are even used for plowing fields.
Camel wool is used to make clothing and camel milk is a staple in that part of the world.
Missionaries from Gospel for Asia go into these villages to bring the gospel, and if they can meet physical needs while they are at it then it provides a great platform to show that those who follow Jesus love them in a very real way.
“Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me” – Matthew 25:40
Would you consider giving a small donation to help us make a difference to the lives of villagers in India?
