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.
Please send your give by PayPal or by mail to: Praise International, P.O. Box 927, Caldwell, ID 83606.
Pastor Andi Nistoroiu, pastor in Romania, tells us this story of something that really happened: We volunteered in the National Campaign of Reading the Bible organized in Filipesti, challenging people to read God’s Word. Following this event, the local Orthodox Priest submitted a complaint to the police against us because we were talking to people on the streets. Together with two other believers from my church we had to give declarations to the police, and because we hadn’t broken the law in any way, they couldn’t do anything to us. Many people from our city appreciated what we did. As a follow-up, we were able to visit with them and give them a Bible.
