There are many ways to say “Merry Christmas” from “Buon Natale” to “Feliz Navidad” to “Joyeux Noel.” Regardless of who you are or where you are or what language you speak, the best way, though, to express the thought is by doing something for someone else. Within the NACCC, that can be accomplished by contributing to the Christmas Appeal, by contributing to our NACCC Missions, or by supporting One Great Hour of Sharing needs. Say Merry Christmas by your actions.
Giving From A Spirit Of Love
Julie Robie, Missions Administrator
How did you personally help NACCC missions to “Keep Moving Forward” in this past year of uncertainty? You prayed for them, you encouraged them, and you remembered them. Your heart for God’s people provided approximately $364,000 to be sent for the work of NACCC missions. Along with the Mission and Outreach Ministry Council, the missionaries send their thanks for your kindness, for supporting them, and are grateful to be working together to reach out to “our world in the name of Jesus Christ.”
