Too often someone will say, “What difference will my little donation make?”
By itself, who knows? In faith, Christians believe every act of kindness is never wasted.
For example, early Christians (late Roman Empire, around 350 AD) thought each gift, no matter how large or small, went on a cosmic orbit between earth and heaven and back to earth, according to historian Peter Brown.
In any case, there’s no denying that lots of little donations can combine into a critical mass to make a big impact. We’re talking about combining lots of little donations — the suggested amount is $50 a year — into one large pool of Mission Match Matching Contributions. The more people who offer their “drops” in the bucket, the more buckets will fill up and overflow to provide a larger and larger pool of Mission Match Matching contributions to do more and more church projects to help children in the 40 countries.
Gifts from anyone who wants the church in the U.S. to provide more help, in Jesus’ name, to the 40 countries that are behind the curve in meeting global under-age-5 mortality rates (U5MR) reduction goals, can make a difference through Mission Match.
Together we can help these 40 countries and therefore help close the world’s Promise Gap.
Some people like Jesus but the church, not so much. Other people are active in church and think the church can do more. Others care about the rate of global child deaths and agree that the church could do more through their delivery networks of caring people offering help in Jesus’ name.
You can donate once a year, or more often. You can donate any amount. The more “drops” in the buckets, the more buckets overflow into a bigger and bigger pool making more Mission Match Matching Contributions available to encourage more churches to help more children.
