ON THE MISSIONS
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
or those of us who are protected from the winter cold by proper housing, heating, and warm clothing, the difference made by a warm blanket can be beyond our imagination.
But for poor families on the Missions, the gift of a blanket means the world:
‘When the snow came, I didn’t know what to do. Then Baba (Father) brought me a blanket sent from heaven.’
‘I gave my old blankets to my grandchildren. The one I received saved me. I was so happy and grateful.’
‘With no work, we go without many things. Receiving two blankets was like a miracle.’
‘I couldn’t read the message on my blanket, When Father told me what it said, I couldn’t believe it. I cried.’
So we really hope you’ll understand why we’re asking for your kindness again this year. Winter will soon be here. And even before the deadly Coronavirus struck, the need was great. Now it’s even more urgent. Not only for those suffering from the bitter cold, but for those suffering from Covid-19 and other health issues.
Your gift, made online now, will mean the world to someone on the Missions in rural Africa.
And if you use the space provided to add a personal message to the recipient of ‘your’ blanket, your gift won’t only be the warmth – but also the warmth of your caring generosity.
God bless you for your kindness. And if you have any intentions you’d like included in our monthly Mass for Mission friends, please let me know.
