Christmas Outreach Boxes

We have the tremendous privilege of helping our dear friends Samy and Ruth in their outreach to several villages near Debra Zeit, Ethiopia by providing Christmas Boxes for children.

Samy and Ruth are YWAM missionaries serving people in a remote area called Bishoftu.   These two have incredible hearts to bring the Good News to men, women and children.  Many on our mission teams have met them and had the privilege of serving alongside these two saints of God.

In this rural area of Ethiopia, it is a daily struggle for parents to provide even basic needs for their children and many children and families have not yet heard of Christ’s love for them.   Samy and Ruth have committed their lives to make Christ known in this area God has called them to.

You can touch the kids in this village with the love of Christ by giving them a small gift box for Christmas.  Ethiopians celebrate Christmas on January 7th so there is still time to do this!  Each box costs only $5.00 and includes:

Toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, Vaseline, comb,
bath tissue, spoon, cookie biscuits, candy treat, a boiled egg,
a pen, a notebook, a small toy and a New Testament.

In years past they were able to reach hundreds of kids with the gift boxes.  You can read about the impact those Boxes of Joy had on many children right here!   Samy and Ruth have nurtured ongoing relationships with the children in those rural areas where they have started Sunday schools so that the Gospel is still going out. This year they will be giving boxes and sharing the Good News in a different area.

If you’d like to bring a huge smile and bless a child in this way while opening a door for the Gospel to be shared, please donate via check payable to 'Adoption Ministry' with a note attached designating ‘Bishoftu Ethiopia’ or call our office to give your information over the phone:  253-770-2283  Our mailing address is:  PO Box 1145 Puyallup WA 98371.

Thank you on behalf of all the grateful recipients of these Christmas boxes!
