The disciples in Pakistan are too poor to buy Christmas gifts for their children. Average income per family is $130. $100 goes for a one room apartment. Aged parents, husband and wife and their children all live in this room. Communal toilets are outside and cooking is also outside over a fire.
The remaining $30 is for food, transportation, medical, school fees, clothing, etc. Because they are Christian, they get only the lowest paying jobs. It is impossible for them to buy Christmas gifts for their children.
Please help with donations to provide gifts for these 150 children.
Checks can be made out to South Asia Mission Society and are tax deductible.
I will be in the back of the sanctuary on Sunday to collect.

Dear Family & Friends,
I hope you are all healthy & happy!
It’s the holiday season & I’d like to ask you to consider making a Christmas donation to HOPE foundation to support the orphanage projects & the widow’s home in Chennai India. Donations can be made on: https://give.do/nonprofits/hope-foundation
The processing fee is only 3% & the funds will be received in one month. The receipt that you receive from Give India will be valid for tax exemption.
Cards may be sent to them at:
Mark, Joanna and Autumn Martin
130 Knob Lick Drive
BABY BOY! Theo Peter Tomol
Instead of a meal train, gift cards to restaurants would be the most helpful and thoughtful way to support the Tomol family as they adjust to a family of six. Suggestions are: Outback, Locos and Zaxby’s. Jillian’s email is firstname.lastname@example.org and cards can be sent to James, Jillian, June, Philippa, Elliott and Theo Tomol at 215 Ferncliff Drive, Athens, GA 30606.
