Giving {Living} Beyond: Samaritan’s Purse

Samaritan’s Purse.  Operation Christmas Child.  Shoeboxes.  Franklin Graham.  Goats. Wait?  Goats?  What do goats have to do with Samaritan’s Purse?

Samaritan
Maybe you, like me apparently, have been living under a rock and had no idea that Samaritan’s Purse has a gift catalog … filled with amazing ways to bless others around the world, some for under $10! How does giving a goat {$70} make a difference?  Watch this: $70 to change a community … maybe instead of that new game for the Wii or Xbox, your family would give a goat. Perhaps you are looking for some stocking stuffers or small gifts to honor people who have blessed you in the past year.   How about one of these:

  • Feed a hungry baby for a week {$9}
  • Milk {$5}
  • Life-Saving Mosquito Nets {$10}
  • Train and Equip an Evangelist ($35}
  • Care for AIDS Orphans and Widows {$40}
  • Baby Chicks {$14}

Maybe your extended family is willing to give up the annual “Dirty Santa” game and spend that money to build a freshwater well for a community {$400}.

Check out the Samaritan’s Purse Gift Catalog for more ways to give.

There are many ways to give … many ways to {live} beyond.   Will you consider how you and your family can make a difference beyond your home?

  1. Teri-Lynne, what a beautiful, grace-filled reminder. Thank you so much for spreading the word about our catalog, and sharing the light of Jesus.

    1. It is a joy to share with others about the ministry of Samaritan’s Purse … thank you for inviting me to be a part!!

  2. I got my catalog in the mail recently and cried as I read it. It really takes very little to do so much for others. I think we are giving soccer balls this year.

    1. I think we’re going to give soccer balls too! And who knows what else?!?! Milk, food for a baby, mosquito nets … so many simple, inexpensive ways to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

  3. Thank you for sharing this and challenging us to give in creative ways! I saw a widow’s program in Ethiopia where cows were given and it was life changing for the women. I think it is hard for us to comprehend that truth but it is truth! James 1:27, 2:14-17!

  4. […] can make a difference … whether we buy goats, bake cookies, or carry a great bag.  We we choose to give beyond ourselves, we are offering life, […]
