How H.O.P.E. Began

We began with what we called the Christmas H.O.P.E Project Africa in 2004, where SOFFY Ministries© gave Christian materials to those in ministry that did not have resources to teach their own congregations or students.

Sending Bibles overseas was quite costly and took up most of the budget for the project. So we looked for ways to be able to continue the outreach by partnering with ministries who could get the Bibles in parts of Africa so we would not have the great expense of shipping and handling.

Bibles are still given through SOF Living Legacy Bible Foundation in greater number now, but this didn't solve what we were to do with Christmas H.O.P.E.

A New H.O.P.E.

It was the following year that we began distributing ministry materials at parades and other evangelistic functions with the SOFFY Pets, and it was here the Lord showed us that Christmas H.O.P.E must come to the children.

As the outreach grew, so did the awareness of the program. It has now extended into the schools and head-start kinds of programs where we reach children from the ages of 2-18 through day care and after school programs.
God has blessed SOFFY Ministries through this street outreach program to reach orphans and children in need. Christmas H.O.P.E. has shared the message of Christ internationally in Mexico, Pakistan, Great Britain and the Ukraine.

Since then Christmas H.O.P.E has gone even farther! With each gift pack a child receives, there is a Faith Moments Daily Devotional and letter to the parent /guardian giving hope also to the adults in the child's life. 

Each Gift Packs Includes:

Although the gift changes each year, these items remain the same:
