The Churches of Christ in Christian Union

Our 2017 Advent Offering

Last year was our first experience of having an Advent Offering which replaced our February Sacrifice Offering. What a thrill it was to receive nearly $67,000! This offering helps in providing disaster relief when such events occur on our mission fields. It also assists in the operational costs. This past year funds from this account enabled us to send finances to Yemen for the Humanitarian Relief and just recently, to our churches in the Caribbean region due to the damage from the hurricane.

Our theme for the offering this year is The Way in a Manger. Truly, He is the way and the truth and the life… John 14:6. Let’s not hold back in sharing The Way with friends, neighbors and those around the world. You may not feel called to another country to share The Way, but we can all lighten the load of those who have responded to the call God has given them. Let’s work at making this offering the best yet! The goal this year is to raise $75,000.

Your gift will make a difference today!
 
  

Bolivia: Michael & Donna Brown

mike-donna-brown-2015

From the beginning of our service to the Lord as missionaries, we discovered it to be full of many opportunities to share God's love! We are so thankful for the privilege of sharing Christ's love in a needy part of our world called Bolivia.

During this past term of ministry, Donna served at a center for abandoned babies with special medical needs. In addition to that and other humanitarian ministry, Donna was also able to teach English classes at one of our local churches.

Mike has enjoyed teaching at the Berea Bible seminary to help train future leaders in the Church. Trips to remote regions of the country have also provided him incredible opportunities to share the Gospel in places where it is still very new!

We thank the Lord for His strength and provision and so appreciate all our partners who faithfully give and pray to help make this ministry possible. We look forward to what God has in store for us next in the land of our calling Bolivia, South America!
