One hundred eighty-two.

That’s how many men, women, and children The Connecting Tree provided gifts for.

Ages 1 month to 68 years. Two different languages. Many different skin tones.

That’s how many Christ-followers it took to carry out this mission. More than that, really, as some joined in as a family.

The Connection: to connect the Church to Countryside.

IMG_3171All of this was accomplished that day. Lives were pointed to Christ through a simply wrapped pair of shoes. Lives were connected to the Church with the presentation of a bicycle. Lives were encouraged through the giving of a new baby doll.

While we understand that Christmas gifts are not the focus of Christmas, we also understand when there is a need we are called to help fill it. In giving, we filled more than just a physical need. We made connections that will point our neighbors to the One who was born as a babe in order to give all He had.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above…” James 1:17
