Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means, “God is with us.” (Matthew 1:23)
God is with us in all times and in all places. In the furthest corners of the world, where war, disasters and poverty threaten lives, your gifts help show our brothers and sisters in need that God is with them as well.
That’s why I’m so excited about the LWR Christmas Matching Gift Challenge. Some generous friends of LWR are matching your gifts — up to $170,000 — through December 31!
That means your gift will go further to help families grow food, access clean water, earn income, provide medical care, education and more!
I hope you will take part in this exciting opportunity to increase the impact of your gift. Please give as generously as you can!
Your gift today will help save lives and make a lasting difference in communities all over the world.
