At Christmas we focus on the Lord God who came down at Christmas, because of His never ending love for us.
Love Came Down at Christmas to rescue us and set us free forever.
This is the message we share through Christmas H.O.P.E. International.

S.H.I.N.E. - Christmas H.O.P.E. USA Coloring Contest

S.H.I.N.E. ~ Share His Incredible News Everywhere

... so that's what we did by holding a Shine USA Christmas H.O.P.E. Coloring Contest in 2013.

We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ as a reminder of God's love sent to Earth through the Savior.

As believers, we are to share this message of H.O.P.E. (Heaven's Own Promised Emmanuel) to everyone. The USA theme was S.H.I.N.E. (Shine His Incredible News Everywhere), based on the scripture Matthew 5:16.
"Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in Heaven." Matthew 5:16 ESV

Do your kids like to color? Can they express what Christmas really means? We thought so, and that’s why we believed the Christmas H.O.P.E. Coloring Contest would enable us to reach a multitude of people with the gospel of message.  It worked!

Then Jesus said again unto them …
"I am the light of the world: he that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. (John 8:12)

You made this possible in the USA.

H.O.P.E. for Teens Internationally

Blocked to protect these
Christian's identities.
How often do you see your teenager longing to read the Bible, especially when it is illegal to own one? 

This teenager/young adult in Pakistan won this Bible through the Christmas H.O.P.E. International Contest.

She was only one of the few that received Bibles, but we want to change that.

Through Christmas H.O.P.E. you can make a difference in a child’s life by making a donation that will help us get the right Bible translations to those who don’t have access to one.
By monthly making a donation you can be an active part in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ, so we can reach one child at a time.

There Is Always Hope

God has promised to give us HOPE for a brighter day! A good future… but how will they know if we don't tell them?

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you.
Plans to give you HOPE and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 

The Lord has a message for you. He has planned a good life for His children.  His plans include HOPE for a future.

This is our message - this is our H.O.P.E.
