2021 Christmas Appeal – BWA Afghanistan Crisis
Our Christmas Appeal for 2021 is to raise funds in support of the Afghanistan Crisis. Decades of a refugee crisis have resulted in nearly six million Afghans forcibly displaced from their homes. TheTaliban’s recent takeover of the government has severely compounded the crisis., forcing hundreds of thousands to flee from their homes and tens of thousands in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. Baptist World Aids response is to meet the immediate needs of displaced families in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Our local Christian partners are poised to provide critically needed emergency supplies including monthly food aid, blankets, mattresses and plastic sheets for winter protection.
390.000+ people displaced since May 2021
80% are women and children – the majority of those fleeing are the most vulnerable and at risk.
Covid 19 has compounded the crisis by overwhelming the already fragile health system.
Please prayerfully consider what you might be able to give to help this crucial work.
When God reveals some of himself to the likes of Hannah, He reveals more than an incidental blessing…Hannah wasn’t only blessed with a son, but now saw more of who God was. After seeing the birth of her son, she then became aware of God’s authority to give life (1 Sam 2:6)…His authority to humble and exult people (verse 7)…His authorship of earth itself (verse 8).
It seems as Hannah saw just some of God, she sensed more than what she’d actually seen…and what she sensed made her heart sing. In chapter 1:15, we see her pouring out her soul to the Lord. As God then revealed Himself to her in her anguish, her heart somehow jumped to an informed conclusion – there was mercy in His eyes…He makes all things right…this was the King of Kings.
