Dear (First Name),

Did you get a chance to read Elina’s story that I sent you last week? If not, please take a look below. I know you'll be blessed by it!

Elina's story is a great reminder of all that God is doing through you and your partnership with Josh McDowell Ministry. And as the season for giving launches with #GivingTuesday next week, I encourage you to join me in transforming it into #GivingTRUTHDay by helping us send God's truth around the globe!

Until the whole world hears,

Josh

Changing lives with
the truth of Jesus Christ

Dear (First Name),

“I am a social worker,” says Elina,* a young woman in Central Asia. “Every day I deal with children and teenagers from difficult families.”

She confesses it’s not easy. But she does it. She knows it’s what God has asked her to do, and her greatest desire is to be in His will.

Elina sees firsthand the challenges facing the boys and girls she works with, from children through those in their early 20s. They are accustomed to being let down by those in their lives…to feeling empty and hopeless. They tend to make poor choices…and suffer the consequences.

“They need to know how to discern between right and wrong,” says Elina.

Elina has found that knowing Jesus Christ helps her make her own decisions because His truth guides her in real, practical ways. “I learned a lot from Josh McDowell’s Right Choices Bible and Don’t Check Your Brains at the Door,” she says. And her knowledge enables her to share with the youth how right and wrong become clear when Jesus lives in their hearts.

Pointing people to the truth

Elina expresses deep gratitude for the resources she has access to, thanks to Josh McDowell Ministry. “I use them at home, too, with my sons,” she says.

YOU HELP PROVIDE PEOPLE LIKE ELINA WITH:

  • Biblical resources translated into the heart language of the people receiving them
  • Distribution of Christian tools and materials in closed countries
  • Training and events that proclaim the truth of Jesus Christ to people who are hungry for him

Thanks to you and the essential support and resources you make accessible to Elina, she is able to share the love and truth of Jesus Christ with kids who might otherwise never learn about Him. When I received Elina’s letter, my heart was stirred all over again with the passion that propelled me into ministry more than 50 years ago! Lives are changing all around the world.

You can help equip people around the world like Elina with resources
that share the truth of Jesus Christ!

Christian resources translated into the local language are extremely difficult to come by in Central Asia, where Elina works. Christians often experience persecution, and obtaining Christ-centered resources is often impossible. But as you know, our priority is to reach seekers, strengthen believers, multiply disciples and build faith worldwide. We do this by providing the Christ-centered resources, training and live events our partners need to share the truth of Christ in a meaningful way and to make disciples who live for Him.

YOUR partnership is helping transform lives!

Every time you give, you offer hope. You share truth. You help spread the good news!

Thanks to a generous friend who shares our mission and has offered a $200,000 year-end challenge grant, you can maximize your most generous gift when you give today.

“Thank you for the content and the quality of these books,”

Elina said it first, and I say it again: THANK YOU. Thank you in advance for giving a meaningful gift this Thanksgiving that will change lives around the globe.

Your faithful giving shares the truth of Jesus Christ with a world in great need, and it is helping transform lives forever. Thank you for allowing God to use you in such a powerful way. Please GIVE TRUTH this Thanksgiving by sending your most generous gift today.

Until the whole world hears,
