Christmas gifts for sailors

Guus with his sailors
As we did last year, we want to help seafarer's evangelist Guus Peters with his Christmas gifts project again. For many years Guus has been working among sailors in the ports of Terneuzen, Gent and Antwerp, sharing with them the good news about Jesus Christ. 

Each year Guus and Annemiek Peters head down to the cold and windy ports on December 25th and 26th to hand out Christmas goody bags to the sailors. A small token of love, but with a huge impact in the hearts of these men, who are often far from home for months at the time and feel lonely... missing their families.

Each year this project is made possible because of gifts from people like you! For 8,50 euro you can sponsor a Christmas gift. This year the men will receive a warm sweater, a hand knitted beanie, a booklet (in their own language) and some sweets.

If you would like to bless the sailors this Christmas, send your donation of 8,50 euro (or a multiple) to St. Traveling Light, Papendrecht, IBAN: NL91RABO0118582275, BIC: RABONL2U. Make sure to mention SAILORS as we have several projects come up in December.

Let your light shine light in a dark world!
