Project Christmas Blessing 2021 not only verbally presented the love of Jesus to needy children and families but demonstrated true “love in action.” 2021 was another difficult pandemic year and people were suffering due to lack of food, inflation, curfews, unemployment, etc.
With over $83,000 raised, PCB 2021 put hands and feet to love by providing gifts and basic necessities of life (food, blankets, shelter) to needy children and families in Africa, Asia, and Central America.
Similar to PCB 2020, PCB blessed families of servants around the globe: pastors, schoolteachers, gospel workers, etc. Hundreds of pastors and teachers were supplied with funds to not only feed their families but to personally purchase gifts for their children. This method provided for dignified giving and receiving.
Project Christmas Blessing reached children in Pakistan, India, DRC, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Malawi, Honduras, and Mexico. Thousands of families were in a dire situation due to lack of food in Mozambique. In a joint effort with additional funds provided from Africa Mission & Beyond, PCB purchased 1500 bags of maize to help feed thousands of hungry people. Snacks and school supplies were given to the children at the Mozambique distributions. While other gifts would have been nice, it doesn’t help a lot if a child is hungry.
There were extensive outreaches in Pakistan and India. In Pakistan, 10,000 people (many from the brick kilns) heard the story of Jesus and His love through the support of PCB. School children received needed school supplies and gifts. Orphans in Kenya received supplies and gifts. Hundreds of homes were blessed with food and gifts through the sacrifice of PCB 2021 donors.
Project Christmas Blessing annually makes a permanent difference with a major project (approximately 10-20% of each donation). PCB 2021 supported teachers in a Pakistani village school. Plans were to finance a water well in Malawi, but due to severe hunger, these funds were used to purchase additional maize for needy families in Malawi.
