Dear M4KI Friends,
We pray that you are experiencing God’s joy during this beautiful Christmas season. “Jesus, You chose the lowly, the outcasts, and the poor to receive the greatest news the world had ever known; so may we worship You in meekness of heart. May we also remember our brothers and sisters less fortunate than ourselves in this season of giving.” (Anonymous)
Thank you again for your unfailing support and prayers for M4KI. We were able to visit Costa Rica in October in order to deliver some M4KI libraries to some orphanages and to share the gospel via Christian media and acts of service. We were also able to visit one of the locations there where many of these amazing DVDs are being produced, and to meet the wonderful staff who daily labor to make it possible.
Each year, thousands of children suffer abuse, neglect and trauma at the hands of those who are supposed to care for and nurture them. Each child is “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalms 139:14), and deserves to know the love of a family. While there, we found that SOS Children’s Villages in Costa Rica would be a good fit for mission trips, M4KI DVD libraries, and a social responsibility outreach for the local animation team. SOS provides day-care, education, medical services and vocational training to help children overcome difficult situations and enable them to create a better future for themselves. They house 95 children in 13 cottages.
In order to allow more of these children to watch these beautiful videos, we are looking for donations to purchase monitors and DVD players for these cottages. Each set costs about $250. If you are able to help, please send your donations to the address below or through the M4KI website. As Mother Teresa said, “It is Christmas every time you let God love others through you.”
We pray you have a wonderful Christmas, experiencing God’s personal love for you and your family. Thank you again for being part of Media4Kids International.
