” For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11
Christmas in September? “It’s too early” many will cry out! And you would be absolutely correct if we were advertising toys, or electronics, or other assorted items to convince you would be a great gift for a loved one. But this message is much more critical than those things. You have a chance to participate in an event that can change hearts and lives!
As most of you are aware LifeQuest has been providing a Christmas Care Kit to every youth in New Mexico that will spend Christmas in a State or County juvenile facility for over the last ten years. Every year we receive a letter or two from the youth saying “thank you” and asking for help. See just a portion of one of those letters below:
I am almost 17 years old. This is my 3rd time in JDC. I started coming in here at the age of 15. I am a junior in high school. I will be graduating 1 year early. I want to thank you for the Christmas gifts you sent us. We received them today. I really like the 30 Discipleship Exercises. I have been an altar server since I was 12 years old. Anyways, if it is not too much to ask… can you pray for me? My 14-year-old brother tried committing suicide a few days ago by taking a bunch of pills and smoking spice. Now he is brain dead on life support.
My family is waiting until I can hopefully go home this week on an ankle monitor to pull the plug on his life support. Thanks again for everything you sent us! I don’t know who the gentleman who signed the Christmas card is… but please tell him I said thank you!
Will you help us change a life this Christmas Season? Each Christmas Care Kit includes A New Testament Bible, a Puzzle Book, some small added reading materials, some daily discipleship devotions, a Life Book, cozy socks, and some yummy snacks.
In Bernalillo and Dona Ana Counties, we will be providing Christmas parties with pizza, Christmas cookies, and soda when we distribute the Kits. LifeQuest ships kits to the other county detention centers throughout the state.
Our estimated costs this year for Christmas Care Kits and the Christmas parties is $10,000.00. Please consider a gift this year to help us reach these youth. You may also attend one of our parties as a one-time guest in the facilities if you might like to participate. Please call if you have any questions and I thank you in advance for blessing our kids!
