We don’t know all the details about the first Christmas. We don’t know what the manger looked like or how cold it was that night. But we do know that Joseph and a very pregnant Mary found themselves alone in a new city with nowhere to take shelter.
Were they afraid? Were they lonely? It’s not difficult to imagine they were both. But there, in the midst of their loneliness, the Hope of the world was born.
Today, refugees across the globe find themselves in a similar situation — facing yet another cold and lonely winter night. Some have been in camps for years now, set adrift by the violence that destroyed their homes and their families.
They are afraid. They are lonely. And they need your help. This Christmas, you can be the hands and feet of Jesus by bringing lifesaving supplies — and restoring hope — to a refugee.
Your $35 gift multiplies to provide a refugee with $189 worth of lifesaving aid such as food, blankets, and medical supplies plus a storybook Bible. And thanks to a matching gift, your donation given before midnight Dec. 31 will be DOUBLED up to $100,000.
This Christmas, you can remind not one but two refugees that they are not alone.
