Request from Mollie Mostert for Disciples in Pakistan

The disciples in Pakistan are extremely poor- much more than I know how to describe. They are unable to buy Christmas gifts for their children. The only way they get any Christmas gifts is from the donations I send. There are 150 children in the four churches there. My goal is for each child to have a $10 gift. That is nothing to us, but HUGE for them. Any amount you can give will be deeply appreciated. Checks can be made out to South Asia Mission Society and are tax deductible.
Many thanks,

Mollie will have Christmas wreaths for sale tomorrow at church. All proceeds will go towards Christmas gifts for Pakistani Christmas gifts.
