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.

Welcome back to Kids Church Online. As we get ready to celebrate Christmas, we can remember that God showed his Big Love by sending Jesus into the world.
Bible Story – God Promises to Send Jesus
Our story this week is about God’s Promise to Send Jesus. God made lots of promises to his people about sending Jesus, and what Jesus would do. Lots of these promises are found in the book of Isaiah in the Bible.
Isaiah is a really long book in the Bible. Some of God’s promises about Jesus can be found here –
Isaiah 9:6-7 (A child is promised)
Isaiah 53:3-5 (Jesus would be punished for us)
Some other promises from God in Isaiah –
God will send the Holy Spirit – Isaiah 44:3
People who hope in God – Isaiah 40:31
