Samaritan's Purse Christmas Shopping
We received the Samaritan's Purse Christmas shopping catalog today. It is filled with wish lists for people in developing countries. Some of them are very affordable such as $4.00 for milk, $7.00 for a hot meal, $6.00 for blankets, or $14.00 for baby chickens. There are gifts which help people earn a living, gifts for medical needs, gifts for compassion, and gifts of faith. My oldest was able to read through the catalog and select his own gift for a child; in the process, he began to understand the nature of life in developing countries, and the impact of his help. A very small amount can mean a huge blessing to a family.
