Alexander writes in his latest newsletter:
"Christmas is the time for me to show the sailors in word and deed that God loves them too. I want to give a Christmas gift to every sailor I visit. Will you help me with this?
What's in it? A turtleneck scarf or hat, a pair of socks, a bottle of shower gel, a notepad with pen, a roll of Mentos fruit, a Mars, a Christmas card, and a Christmas tract. Each package costs about 6.00 euro. Will you also help me with this this year?"
An important way in which they serve children is through OCJ. 222 now has many Afghan children in need as a result of the recent crisis. OCJ's goal for 2021 is to deliver packages to at least 1,000 children, 500 each of Iranian and Afghan descent.
The packages contain clothes and shoes, especially for winter, multivitamins. baby milk, toys, and educational materials. Whenever possible, 222 children will gather for celebrations, but in smaller numbers. Celebrations are really important because most children had to stay isolated due to the Covid crisis.
If you would like to sponsor a package, you can
- send a donation to St. Traveling Light, Papendrecht IBAN: NL91RABO0118582275 BIC: RABONL2U, or
- 💳 Give by card
Don't forget to mention whether it is for SAILORS or for 222.
