Every Christmas morning, there are two envelopes hidden somewhere in our tree. One for Paul and one for me. But neither are really for us, which is the cool part.
They are gifts given somewhere around the world, on behalf of the other.
The hurt is there. The hunger is there. The injustice is there.
But greater is He in us than he who is in the world.
The opportunity is 0urs. To heal, to feed, to love in His name. Because He first loved us.
Maybe the person receiving the envelope is an educator. Give books on their behalf. If a pastor, give a Bible. If a counselor, give aftercare counseling. If a cook, give food. Extend their heart and passion around the world.
So here are some ideas, ya’ll. Give and love much.

These two organizations are just ones we have worked with in the past. I love them and wholeheartedly believe in their work. But there are countless like them. If you know of other worthy organizations, I would love to hear of them here. Thanks!
