For the past 3 years my family has received the Baptist Global Response (BGR) Christmas gift catalog by mail.
We started a tradition where I’ll give the catalog to my children and allow them to circle the gifts that they would like to purchase for those in need.
We like to do this with BGR because we generally get a letter back from them with stories about how our donation was used to help bless the people in the way that was represented in the catalog.
Because we own chickens of course one of the items we always purchase is chickens. And because it’s such a great need we also now add in water filtration systems. You may remember the Global Relief Run I directed with my local church last year was raising funds for water filtration.
It’s such an uplifting experience to get the letters back from BGR and to hear the stories of how these gifts are actually used.
I’d encourage each of you to take a look at the online gift catalog and select a gift or two to purchase this year. Make it a yearly tradition for you and your family.
