This Christmas, are you looking for an idea for giving a MEANINGFUL GIFT?
We just returned from a visit to Guinea. Wow! It is extremely difficult to be an Pastor in Guinea, as in most countries of West Africa! Guinea is so poverty-stricken. Shortages of electricity and water (there is water, but it is not at all exploited), absolutely TERRIBLE roads! Dangerous! A lack of any effective means of transportation. Communication by phone, very poor! Internet? Leaves much left to be desired, to say the least. No postal system! Imagine?
Praise International exists to support, encourage and facilitate the ministries of national pastors in Poverty-Stricken Countries, such as Guinea.
We have two ideas for a meaningful gift this Christmas:
- A Guinea Pastor would CHERISH having a good Study Bible with Commentary.
2. Sponsor a Guinea Pastor for $35/month.
Village Pastors in West Africa typically have NO SALARY. Imagine? How many in America would work for no salary? They have gardens, maybe chickens, maybe a goat. But this is not enough. They need money to send their children to school! Imagine a pastor in America whose children can’t go to school? Praise International seeks people who would be willing to sponsor a pastor? A fruitful evangelical church, lead by a dynamic devout Man of God, will impact their community for good and for God and for God’s Glory.

Joseph Oulai is our Praise Representative in Cote d’Ivoire. He is a devout man of God, an ordained minister, committed to faithfully serving the Lord in evangelism, church-planting and church growth. And he’s an excellent husband and father.
It breaks my heart that their fourth child, Anne Victoire, has an arm that functions at only 40 percent. Especially when THIS CAN BE FIXED. But it is expensive. They had hoped it would correct itself with time, but it hasn’t. In order to give Anne full use of her arm, they will need about $2000 for the corrective treatment. Please consider giving the Oulai’s a very special Christmas gift this Christmas. A gift that will give this beautiful daughter the use of both arms for the rest of her life. Wouldn’t that be wonderful!
