Christmas in August

Christmas in August

Are you looking for a missions project for the people in your church or small group? Are you looking for a way to support missionaries as a family or individual?

Thank You for Christmas in August

School supply distribution

When your Mission Friends send requested items for Christmas in August, they not only bless the people who will receive the items. They also bless the missionaries with prayers and encouragement. We thought you would like to read these words of thanks from Pastor Rajan Shahi, who serves among the Nepali community in New York City. Pastor Rajan was one of the Christmas in August missionaries this year for Mission Friends and also in the materials and websites for multicultural churches. Enjoy!

Anticipating Christmas in August

Do you remember the anticipation you felt as a child on the days leading up to Christmas? You tried to be good by being nice to others. You tried not to fight with your brother and sister. You kept looking at the tree in your living room, and wondered what packages would be under the tree on Christmas day. You wrote your list way before Christmas, and now waited to see if the things on your list would show up under the tree.

Summer Break Missions Projects for Kids

Ah, summer. I long for the school days of the past when I was guaranteed a summer break. There’s just no comparison between the promise of a no-strings-attached break and using vacation hours to take off work for a week (at the most). Kids have it made, am I right?
