Help deliver hope...

Our Annual Spirit of Giving-Zapata outreach is quickly approaching! Our family has so much gratitude for the many blessings over the years and one of those is you. Every winter season, we travel to Zapata, TX to speak love into the lives of children in need of a relationship with our Lord. With a heart filled with joy and hope, we take your gifts to these families to show them God’s great love for them. For many of the families, your gifts are the only presents they receive for Christmas. Listening to their stories and life challenges can be overwhelming, yet this outreach brings us joy to sow into their lives through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We invite you to be a part of the 10th Annual Spirit of Giving-Zapata and contribute to the funds needed to reach this year’s goal. We are asking for donations of $50. This amount will provide a meal and gifts to a family of 4. With your ongoing support, our ministry is able to reach our goal each year! In addition to requesting cash donations, we have planned 2 other events to help us reach our goal. You can find out more about these planned activities on our church bulletin or speak with Mary Jacobson. Since we do understand that not everyone will be able to help with a cash donation, we hope you will consider donating goods or volunteer hours for some of these events.

You can drop off gifts at Community Church International, 17042 160th Ave NE, Thief River Falls, Minnesota 56701. Many of these homes are not very well insulated, so please consider donating blankets as well. Monetary donations can be sent to Community Church International, 17042 160th Ave NE, Thief River Falls, Minnesota 56701, made payable to United Team International with a notation in the memo line Spirit of Giving / Zapata or visit (click on projects and then Zapata) to donate online. All donations are needed by December 15, 2019.
