Thank you for sharing the joy! Over 1200 children were blessed this Christmas because of you. May you be richly rewarded.
Project Christmas Blessing in Pakistan was a blessing to many poor children. Bro. Michael Smith distributed to many of the children in a special service held in the chapel of Bro. S. A Muslim cook was paid to come and prepare chicken and rice for the children and adults after the service.
Later, gifts were prepared and taken to the Brick Kiln slavery Christians. They live in very poor conditions and work hard making bricks, living much like the coal miners many years ago in the respect that they go into debt with the brick kiln owners and are never able to get out of the cycle of dependency. A look of joy is apparent on their faces!
Bro. Michael Smith and his family, along with Sis. Karissa Bird, distributed Project Christmas Blessing while on a mission trip down to Taumaulipas, Mexico. One day, the young people made up gift packs for the children. They then took off on roads, knowing not where they went, to randomly pass out gifts to children in rural areas. Arriving back at the chapel, they had a PCB service for the children of the local congregation. Bro. Michael preached a short message and then Bro. Omar shared the simple story of Christ’s birth and gift to the world.

Bro. James and Sis. Tricia took a group to Sinaloa, Mexico, on a mission trip. While there, Sis. Tricia and the girls were able to buy gifts to be distributed in that area for Project Christmas Blessing.
Later, they had their distribution on January 6, which is Kings day in Mexico. Thank you for your gifts of love to all the children.

Our PCB distribution of 36 gift baskets was a rewarding success! With appreciation to all who sacrificed and donated, we praise our Father in heaven. All of the children gladly listened to the gospel message of Jesus Christ, with at least nine opening their hearts to Jesus and salvation! Praise God! Thank you all!
Love in Christ,

Greetings in the wonderful name of Jesus. We want to express our heartfelt THANK YOU to all who were part of the Project Christmas Blessing. Thank you for all your labors and sacrifice to lift the hearts of many during this past holiday season.
The money sent to us was spent some on the island of Roatan and some in Rio Esteban, Colon, on the mainland of Honduras.
We were able to give out gift packets to approximately 47 children on Roatan, and 30 children in Rio Esteban. We also distributed approximately 20 boxes of groceries to needy families on Roatan, and 35 in Rio Esteban. At least one person received salvation and there was report of those who had no food for the day until they received their Christmas Blessing.
Again, THANKS for the smiles you placed on many faces. May the Lord bless and reward one and ALL!

Greetings in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ. First of all let us thank you for the money you send for our children. It was of great use as we could buy many gifts for the children. We have conducted the programmes in Bihar & Kerala.
In Kerala, we conducted the programme on 24th December. Around 60 children participated in the programme. We taught them songs and told stories about the birth of Jesus. After the programmes we gave them gifts and delicious food.
We have extended our ministry to a state named Bihar. There was about 2 ½ days journey by train. Bihar is one of the poorest states of India where gospel is not reached fully. One of our church members migrated to Bihar to do the Lord’s ministry and started a church at Bikram (a village in Bihar). Some of our pastors and brothers of our church went to Bihar to conduct the programmes.
We conducted the programme between 4th – 8th February. About 700 children participated in the programme which was conducted in 4 different venues. We gave them gift and food.
Children participated in the programmes in Bihar as well as in Kerala enjoyed the programmes very much. They extended their gratitude towards you. Please uphold them in your valuable prayers. Once again we thank you for the effort you showed towards God’s ministry and to us.
