You are God’s hands and feet. He answers prayers through the generosity of people like you. Please, give right now. Your gift today determines the number of people who will be helped in 2020. People who are immeasurably precious to God. Your gift today will help people like Ide, Martha, and Bonnya.
$50 is all it takes to start a ripple effect of good that will be felt all over the world.
You can always give more than $50, but will you start 2020 with one of the most important gifts you’ll give all year?
As we head into 2020, we can’t help but look back over the last year and marvel at all the good you made possible.
Your 2019 accomplishments…
Here’s just a peek at some of what you made possible—some of the lives you changed for the better:
All told, your generosity made 50 projects in 32 countries possible last year. That’s a lot of good, and thousands lives changed.
2020 is set to be your biggest year yet
Our prayer for you is that this new decade brings abundant blessings, that your every need is met, and that you come to know God’s love in new and deeper ways.
It is our honor to pray for you by name in front of the Blessed Sacrament every Friday in our office chapel.
Would you pray for these friends around the world, and ask God to provide marvelously for their needs?
Later this year, little Ide and her fellow orphans will have the opportunity to have a water well built on the orphanage grounds. This well will give Ide access to clean drinking water in Ndekesha, DR Congo. Not only will the children benefit from clean water, but the entire surrounding village will be able to utilize this new well, too! Pray for Ide, the Ndekesha villagers, and all who are waiting for clean water.
Pray for Martha, who makes and sells bread in order to make enough money to feed her children. Resources are few and far between in Martha’s tiny rural village but she works hard to provide for her family and gives as generously as she can to others in the village who have even less than she does. Please pray for Martha, in thanksgiving for her generous spirit, as well as for God’s abundant providence in her life.
For the fishing villages on remote islands in Ecuador, life is extreme. Poverty levels are high and for many, a life of crime is a last resort that becomes a way of life. But an order of priests we’ve worked with extensively in India—the Pilar Fathers, or Missionaries of St. Francis de Sales—are ready to bring hope to the people here, both by meeting their material needs and by sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with them. Pray for the priests, that their vocations remain strong. And especially pray for the islanders, especially the thousands of children and youths who are in deep need of hope and help.
