Provide Hope and Dignity with Sewing Machines
A Syrian refugee in Jordan, Salima* struggled to provide for her children after her husband abandoned them. She enrolled in a sewing course offered by a local ministry while also working in a daycare. After a ministry worker visited Salima’s home and discovered that she was trying to use an old, rusted sewing machine that barely worked, the ministry surprised her with a new one. “You saved me from humiliation, me and my children,” she said through joyful tears. “The machine allows her to get sewing clients…they pay her a good wage,” the ministry leader said. “There are many women like this, who are underprivileged and want honest work to provide for their needs.” Your gift will bless a woman like Salima with her own sewing machine.

Farm Animals for
Families in Need
Tala looked over her growing flock of chickens and breathed a sigh of gratitude for God’s provision. Like most daily wage earners in the Philippines, she’d lost her job during pandemic lockdowns. So, she gathered her family and took refuge with a local ministry that trains and equips poor villagers with agricultural skills. Once trained, the ministry gifted the family with three goats and several chickens. “They have earnings from those livestock, and meat and eggs for food,” the ministry leader said. You can extend a lifeline to a struggling family in a poor country with your gift of farm animals. These valuable creatures are gifts from God that can break the cycle of poverty. Goats, ducks, pigs, chickens, and water buffalos provide families with an extraordinary opportunity to be self-sustainable.

Bicycles to Build God’s Kingdom
How do you double—even triple—the number of people a local missionary in a poor country can reach with the gospel each day? Give him a bicycle!

This Christmas, accelerate the spread of the gospel with your gift of a bicycle.
Your gift of $100, $200, or $300 provides 1, 2, or 3 bicycles
Help Persecuted Christians
Two local missionaries in India were praying for a sick man in his home when a group of militant extremists pushed opened the door, threw the missionaries to the ground, and began beating them mercilessly. Thanks to support from Christian Aid Mission donors, these missionaries received medical aid. When they reported the incident to the police, several officers asked the missionaries to pray for them. Your gift for persecuted Christians helps cover the costs of medical aid, legal aid, shelter, basic necessities, and relocation for believers who are abused, attacked, falsely imprisoned, and whose homes or belongings have been destroyed.

Bibles in Local Languages
After a missionary in Mexico read a scripture passage to an unreached tribe in their local language, 30 people wept and repented of their sin.

Others ask us to read them or explain their content.” For people living in places where Bibles are scarce or cost prohibitive, the Word of God is a precious gift. This Christmas, you can bless people with the greatest treasure: a Bible in their own language!

Feed the Hungry
In a remote village in Ecuador, a distraught mother had no idea how she would feed her five children. Her husband had abandoned them, and pandemic lockdowns had eliminated jobs for daily wage earners. The day after they’d eaten their last bit of food, local missionaries arrived at their door with milk and groceries. “She accepted Jesus as her Savior,” the ministry leader said. “And now she has opened her little house for us to do Bible studies.” Share Christ’s love today with your gift to provide life-saving nourishment and life-transforming hope to poor families.
