A New Kind of Gift Exchange — A Reflection of Jesus’ Love in Action

nullInstead of exchanging gifts at the Christmas Party last year, our LWML group decided to place the money we would have spent on a gift exchange to share Jesus’ love in action with a CASA family (Court Appointed Special Advocates for children). The family was anonymous but we were provided basic information about them. We gathered enough money to buy the family personal items and gifts. We were also able to pay some of their bills. This family is now attending church and the children are going to Sunday school. God has blessed us and them as we reached out to share the hope and promise of Christ at Christmas.

Thank You Lord for the opportunities that you put in front of us. Help us to recognize these opportunities to share your love and the Gospel with others.
