Merry Christmas!

Merry belated Christmas from myself (Rebe) and the Strong Missions staff. 

Isaiah 9:6 
For a child has been born for us,
a son given to us;
authority rests upon his shoulders;
and he is named
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

May we remember Christ´s birth and celebrate it throughout the entire year.

Thank you for being His hands and feet throughout the world.

Blessings from our family to yours. Feliz Navidad!

From Charlie:
Merry Christmas!

Okay, folks, tonight begins the big 24 hours, when all donations made will be doubled, up to 50K per organization and 500K maximum for all organizations under the Advance Program of the United Methodist Church. Remember, all donations are tax deductible and need to be made online, with the info below, between midnight tonight and midnight tomorrow, Eastern Time, and the earlier the better to make sure it gets doubled. That means you can give beginning at 11 tonight if you're Central Time, 10 Mountain, and 9 on the west coast.

We still need about 30K to feed the 350 to 400 kids per day over the upcoming summer vacation, beginning in a couple of weeks, as well as continue our education programs, scholarships and tutoring centers. We've about got December covered but your gift could certainly help us the rest of the vacation plus contribute greatly to the upcoming year, as we'll feed 140 per day all year long after the kids go back to school in February, and the education never stops.

Please give at the following website with the info below, and shoot us an email once your gift is made, so that we can track it. Thanks so much. You're gift will make a difference.

Please make sure when the new webpage opens that it is a secure site and it says “Strong Missions Loaves and Fishes (#3021552)” at the top.
