Birthday Gift for Jesus

Each year in December we open up a special giving fund here at Grace Church that we call "Birthday Gift for Jesus." Every dollar that comes into this fund is used to help precious orphans living in the Central African Republic. We have provided many necessities for these wonderful children but the bulk of the funds are used to fully support three Christian Schools for orphans in the Central African Republic. Our school here at Grace, Lititz Christian School, also supports a Christian School in the CAR which allows our ministry to fully support the total yearly cost of these four schools that are training orphans who will one day be the future leaders of the Central African Republic government and church.

What these kids in the Central African Republic lack in resources they make up for in creativity. The above picture shows a delightful guy walking out to recess with his homemade "ipod" and earbuds! It is your gifts to this project above and beyond your regular giving to our church that helps us to meet orphans right where they are at (the CAR) and help move them to where God wants them to be! Thank you!
