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.
Today we are exploring one of the stories that occurred after Jesus came back to life.
On the Road to Emmaus
In the story (Luke 24:13-35), the two people talked to Jesus about what had been happening whilst walking along a road. At first the people don’t realise it’s Jesus. We remember some of the amazing things Jesus did – which links to our first song – Oh Have You Heard?
We also hear about Jesus’ death, and the mystery of the empty tomb. Jesus explains what it means to his friends, and what it says in the Old Testament about him. Our second song – Rescuer (Good News) – celebrates what Jesus’ life, death and resurrection mean for us today and in the future.
Finally we have a special recording of The Lord is King. Colin Buchanan has an introduction for kids recorded only a few weeks ago at the start of the COVID-19 shutdown period. Colin reminds us to trust in Jesus – because he is King. In our story today, Jesus cared about what was troubling his friends, and he cares about what’s going on for us today as well.
