30 Ideas for #GivingTuesday
We all enjoyed great deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Now we can turn our focus toward Giving Tuesday (today, December 2). Here are 30 ways to give:
1. Give a smile. It’s amazing how you can lift someone’s spirits just by smiling at them.
2. Give a genuine compliment. Tell someone something you appreciate about them.
3. Give $30 per month for our missionary support. If 11 more people did so, we’d have 100% pledged!
4. Friend us on Facebook where we share pictures & updates about the family & about the ministry.
5. Give $30 as a one-time gift to fund the translation of 1/2 a page of Scripture in a Roma (Gypsy) dialect.
6. Learn more about the history & plight of the Roma (Gypsies) of Europe so you can pray with better understanding.
7. Commit to pray for this ministry daily for 30 days. Our daily prayer calendar is on page 2 of each of our prayer letters.
