“Every good and perfect gift is from above…”

Christmas is coming! How wonderful to be reminded that every good and perfect gift comes from God! 

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” – James 1:17

God’s gifts never go out of style, and God’s supply never runs out! They are available to everyone -- all cultures -- all ages -- rich and the poor. You don’t have to have a Christmas tree to put them under – they are available anywhere 24/7!

Above all else, Jesus is your good and perfect gift! He is not just the gift giver -- He is the gift! When He is received and trusted, His gifts of love, forgiveness, joy, hope and peace follow. His gifts light up dark places, because He lights up men’s hearts. He drives out fear and replaces it with faith. His gifts are personally addressed to you and signed, “Love forever, Jesus”.

You are also a gift, a present from God -- to your family and to the world. Thank you for being a gift to the gogos, orphans, youth and teachers in Malawi. Thank you for encouraging our SAFE staff through your prayers.

God has asked us to join Him in delivering His good and perfect gifts… among them the Good News about Jesus, forgiveness, love, justice, providing for the poor, and caring for the earth.

We do this together!

We are grateful for the gift of you!
