Christmas Gifts of Love

Christmas Gifts of Love

We will be supporting our global mission partner, Lakeview Bible College, and local mission partner, City Gospel Mission, for our Christmas Gifts of Love project.

Global: Lakeview Bible College – Fresh Water Project

The groundwater available on Lakeview’s campus is not fit to drink or use for cooking; in fact, it isn’t fit to water their vegetable garden or even to use in the bathroom facilities. Contaminants in the water will actually kill the plants and erode the piping.

Over the past years, Lakeview has had several projects to dig wells and install water systems, but the treatment systems have only worked effectively for about a year. This requires Lakeview to purchase drinking and cooking water delivered by truck at a cost of $450/month, and they’ve been fighting to maintain the condition of pipes and facilities that do use the groundwater available.

It’s time to get a full capability water system installed that can provide the needed water and be maintained effectively in the coming years. The total project will cost about $10,000, but this can be implemented as two sub-projects of roughly half the cost; the first to provide water for facility use, and the second to provide drinking and cooking water for staff and students.

Local: City Gospel Mission – Rising Scholars Program

We have a wonderful opportunity to partner with City Gospel Mission’s Rising Scholars program. Under-resourced Christian students with leadership potential are often overlooked. Many of these students don’t have the support they need to craft their future story. Rising Scholars helps under-resourced students succeed in their education, grow spiritually, accomplish goals, make career choices and develop healthy relationships.

Rising Scholars provides practical curriculum to the local church that helps students focus on career choices through learning in-person and online, with engaging videos that can be accessed anywhere.
