Greetings from the Awana Head Office in White Rock, B.C.,
I want to extend my personal greeting to you all as this Christmas season begins. This is a season of blessings and we are thankful for every way that God is blessing Awana. Together we are working toward a very simple but powerful mission: To Reach Kids, Equip Leaders, and Change the World, and I am so convinced this is as important a mission as ever. Please allow me to share some of the needs we are currently facing as a ministry and appeal to you for your help in supporting us.
This Christmas we are asking for help with funding in order to reach NEW children and youth with the Awana discipleship program. Most of the donations we seek as a ministry are for funding the specific strategies we have for developing new Awana churches. For example, we can say that there are approximately 3,168 new kids in Awana this fall. That is amazing! It brings our discipleship total in Canada above 30,000. But Awana has always been about reaching more children with the gospel and we need your help to keep going.
Much of our resources go to the efforts of establishing these new ministries and we ask that you consider coming alongside of us to reach even more kids, right here in Canada! Consider sharing a gift this Christmas towards the future (and present) church of our nation, represented in our children and youth.
Thank you and Merry Christmas,
Jon ImBeau, Executive Director, Awana International Canada
