Advent Conspiracy 2017
We all want our Christmas to be a lot of things. Full of joy. Memories. Happiness. Above all, we want it to be about Jesus. What we don’t want is stress. Or debt. Or feeling like we “missed the moment.”
Advent Conspiracy is a movement designed to help us all slow down and create a Christmas worth remembering. But this means doing things a little differently. A little creatively. It means turning Christmas upside down. It means putting Christ back in Christmas!
This is L4L’s 8th Advent Conspiracy. We turn Christmas upside down and put Jesus back front and centre, by Worshipping Fully, Spending Less, Giving More, Loving All!
A highlight of this annual Conspiracy is Christ followers reducing our Christmas Season spending by 10 percent and giving these savings to the poor. As a gift in honour of Jesus’ birth we share His love with the least.
Every year, we provide Christmas joy for the 200+ orphans under our care in Tanzania and Kenya. In years past we have also provided vans for the orphanages and in 2016 we completed the community medical clinic at Samaritan Village.
Advent Conspiracy 2017 offerings will once again provide Christmas food, gifts, clothes, and school supplies at our beloved orphanages: Samaritan Village and Tumaini (Hope) House in Tanzania, and Bethany Village in Kenya, along with the centre for disabled children in our Syrian Refugee Camp. Samaritan village also needs medical supplies for the new community health clinic caring for a highly underserved, poor village community.
Along with orphans, we share Jesus’ love with refugees from ISIS. Last year we provided 2,000+ Christian refugee families in N. Iraq with food and gifts. We hope to do this again. For $50 we can feed an entire refugee family for a month, provide small gifts for the children, and a radio with a Bible chip (in Arabic and Kurdish) inside. Our heart goal in 2017 is to provide an additional 700 care baskets to the families of Peshmerga soldiers killed fighting ISIS; these Kurdish army fighters gave their lives to save Christians, Muslims and Yezidi.
Advent Conspiracy is for individuals, families, churches, home groups, businesses, organisations, clubs . . . anyone! Will you encourage others to participate? Visit our website www.lovefortheleast.org for helpful resources. The Christmas story is a story of Jesus’ transforming love, hope, redemption, and relationship.
Christmas can change the world. Come conspire with us!
“Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.” Hamilton Wright Mabie

L4L will advance the funds for the Orphan Christmas celebrations from our savings and monthly giving, as well as priming the pump for refugee relief. While early Advent Conspiracy gifts are always and truly appreciated, we’ll set a date of 8 January, 2018 to receive Advent Conspiracy love offerings in Jesus’ Name.
