Dear Columban Friend,
Shelter and water for Christmas
In a barren place of nothingness 86 families in Pakistan now have access to new houses, medical assistance and water.
Instead of walking four kilometres twice a day to fetch water from the Indus river, the women of Jhirruk village now have water on tap.
In The Far East magazine, you can read many other examples of similar missionary activities in other countries where Columbans work. The work continues because of your generosity. They are real life examples of sharing the Gospel.
“They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water.” Isaiah 49:10.
I ask that you support the Columban Christmas Appeal which will give hope and assistance where it is needed most this Christmas.
Thank you for your participation in God’s mission.
