Preparing for the Journey
You’ve heard of “Black Friday”, no doubt, and probably “Cyber Monday”. I don’t know who makes this stuff up, but I especially like this one… “Giving Tuesday“. The idea is, in the midst of this season of gift exchanging, we take some time out to really give – helping others through our time, donations, goods or voice. I hope you will consider giving. It isn’t hard to find someone around you that is need, or people who want to do good but need your help to do it. To make it even easier for you, I’ll give you five ways to give today from right within my own family’s involvement in ministry!
Consider giving your time, donation, goods or voice through…
- Africa New Life
- Polish Christian Ministries
- Both of these ministries benefit when you purchase your Amazon goods through https://smile.amazon.com/ choose them as your charity
- Best 8 Days
- 4 Smiths On A Mission
- The Journey Back
Of course, it doesn’t HAVE to be this Tuesday… or a Tuesday at all! Don’t let something silly like “Wednesday” stop you! The important thing is that your giving this Christmas is more than just presents wrapped in pretty packages. The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 God will bless you for your joyful giving and multiply it in ways you could never imagine. Watch Him.
If you don’t know, subscription boxes are a thing right now. You can sign up to get fan gear for your favorite team, makeup, clothes, books, mysteries to solve… just about anything, really, sent in a package to your house once a month. I’ve considered signing up for one because I think I’d enjoy looking forward to a box of surprises arriving in my mail! So, I’m excited to announce a new, fun way to support our mission!
🇵🇱 Polska Pack!
(“Polska” is Polish for “Poland”, in case you’re wondering.)
Boxes will be curated and sent out on the first of each month.
Each box will be a different collection of:
- A hand-made piece of jewelry – keep it for yourself or have a great gift at the ready. Spoiler alert… the first box will include this year’s Mission Necklace “God of Hope”
- A surprise item from or about Poland, Israel or Ukraine (the groups of people we minister to)
- A prayer card for the month listing the ways you can best be praying for this ministry. Put it where you will be reminded!
- A note from me explaining the significance of the items in the box
- A special discount in our Mission Store – the greater your subscription, the steeper the discount!
- Other goodies, puzzles and fun stuff (I can’t reveal too much about your surprises! )
I will also bring a very special gift back from Poland for our full 6-month subscribers!
Boxes start at $30 with discounts for longer subscriptions. You can choose from several subscription levels to control how many boxes you’ll receive. You can also pay monthly.
The time it will take to receive your first box will depend on the point in the month you place your order. All boxes will be sent out on the first mail day of the month.
