Gospel for Asia

There is a really neat opportunity from Gospel for Asia this Christmas to give gifts to people all over Asia. They have done this in past years as well, and Ben and I have loved being involved. One year our church purchased a Water Buffalo for men and women in need!

These gifts go to people who have never heard the gospel of Christ, as well as believers who are laboring as native missionaries to these countries.

You can find out more about purchasing Christmas gifts in this Christmas Catalog.

Gifts range from buying a chicken for about $10, to buying a simple water filtration system for about $30, to even buying a water well (which would be a great group purchase as it is about $1,000)!

I have had a lot of fun looking through the catalog--there are so many great things you can give these desperately needy people--and for so small a sacrifice!

So if you are looking for ways to give this Christmas, or would like to take the focus of off the materialism we so easily turn the holiday into--check it out! Its worth it ;)

Dear Carter Family,

I just read this post and am excited that you took the time to write on your blog about Gospel For Asia. I work at the GFA headquarters full time and was curious to know if you would have an interest in displaying some banners on your blog’s template that link to the Gospel for Asia’s Christmas Catalog.

We desire to build relationships with bloggers in an effort to spread the word about the work of the native missionaries in Asia and the amazing church growth that is taking place. The Web Team that I serve with here on staff has created some custom banners that you may find as a nice addition to your Blog.

Simply click the link below for some banners for the Christmas Catalog.

After finding one you like you can save it as a jpeg. Then post it to your blog as a Gadget/Picture with the following link.

I know the link is long but it allows GFA to track the participation of individuals coming from your blog to the Christmas Site. Maybe we will see some good fruit!

I also have quite a few other cool banners created for the Christmas Gift Program and can email them to you if you would like. They are not on our website.

I can be contacted by calling 1-800-WIN-ASIA or I can be emailed at

Thank you so much for your consideration and I pray all is well with you and your family.
