Normally, at this time of year, children are focused on what they will GET for Christmas. Baudilio and Cristina, leaders of LINC’s Glocal Ministry “Jesus and Me” (J.A.M) program, wanted to change that. They found a way for the J.A.M. children to EXPERIENCE the truth written in Acts 20:35 “It is more blessed to GIVE than to RECEIVE.”

Baudilio & Cristina heard about Operation Christmas Child and decided this would be a great way to involve their J.A.M. children in sharing Jesus’ love with other children all around the world. There was much excitement as each child carefully chose items for the shoe boxes. They gave the box a personal touch by making a card with a Christ-centered message.

Money was needed for postage for these boxes. Cristina encouraged the J.A.M moms to help her raise the money by selling Tamales. After making pounds of masa and wrapping the delicious cuisine in corn shucks, they were successful and able to raise the money to mail 30 boxes. Even the J.A.M. moms experienced that “it is more blessed to give than to receive.”

Each J.A.M. session, on Sunday evenings, in a small two bedroom apartment in Clear Lake, is filled with opportunities to learn more about Jesus through songs, prayer time, Bible Stories, skits, memory verses, & snack time. If it weren’t for Baudilio, Cristina and their three children opening their home to their neighbors, many would not know the love of Jesus. Praise God for their faith and desire to let Jesus light shine through them! They do it all for God’s glory and it gives them joy beyond measure to see children (and their parents) eager to learn more about Jesus.

This humble family has learned that the most blessed thing to GIVE to others is JESUS, and have embraced the opportunity to make disciples of all nations in their own apartment complex. Please keep their growing ministry in your prayers, and look for opportunities this Christmas season to GIVE JESUS to others! You will be blessed!
