Life Giving Gifts
Little Rock, AR - 'Tis the season for gift giving. Have you ever thought of giving a flock of chicks, a Llama or a camel? Heifer.org is offering the opportunity of sharing life-giving gifts this Advent Season.
Maria Jeremia Verriors of Honduras received a starter flock of chicks a few years ago from Heifer.org and now has plenty of eggs to feed her children. This $20 investment for the poor has become a thriving source of protein for her family.
Jose Mayta and Utilla Chura-Laura of Bolivia received two alpacas and now have grown their herd to more than 60 alpacas. The alpaca's wool is sold each year to provide income for their family.
Alex Weboya, age 4, has the gift of clean water with the help of Heifer. Treadle pumps and water conservation projects have helped Alex's village have clean water daily.
Have you ever thought of giving the gift of a goat or water buffalo? Think out of the box this year of new ways to gift the poor of the world with basic life essentials. Pray on it. Check out Heifer.org, Mercy Corp and other hands-on relief agencies, who make each day Christmas by the life-giving projects they share with the needy.
Pray pray pray and let the Holy Spirit guide you this Advent.
Lord, prepare our hearts for your coming, our minds for your wisdom and our souls for your presence this Advent Season. Help us proclaim your incarnation among us every day of the year by helping others in thoughtful ways. In Jesus' name we pray .... Amen
