Advent Conspiracy: Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More, Love All
“And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to ME!’ – Matthew 25:40
Advent Conspiracy is our annual Seasonal rebellion, putting Jesus back in Christmas, showing the difference He makes to a broken, hurting world. Advent Conspiracy sets us Christ followers apart as we Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More and Love All.
Practically, we reduce our normal spending on gifts, parties, food, etc. We then take these savings – ten percent for example – and use them to show Christ’s love among the poor and least in tangible ways.
This is L4L’s 7th annual Advent Conspiracy insurrection for Jesus. Last year, we provided large vans for two of our orphanages! For all three orphanages we provided Christmas toys, food and clothes; and L4L provided Christmas relief to refugees in Northern Iraq. These were the ONLY food and gifts they received for Christmas.
This Advent, we will continue our tradition of providing Christmas celebrations for the orphans; we aim to send $3500 for each orphanage, which provides the Christmas meal, toys, and clothes. Our big goal is to finish the new building at Samaritan Village orphanage which will house a medical clinic, library, and computer room and will be open to the village; the cost to finish is $25,000. Our heart goal, once again, is to provide relief for the Christians refugees in Iraq as they are most underserved. The UN provides for the Muslims and Yezidi in the camps but not the Christians in the villages. We hope to bring the love of Christ to our brothers and sisters there.
The need among the refugees in Iraq is infinite. We’ll simply do the best we can by God’s grace and the help of our friends and partners. The more support, the more we can reach in Jesus’ Name.

Our plans are to advance the funds for Orphan Christmas from our savings, as well as priming the pump for refugee relief. While early Advent Conspiracy gifts are always appreciated, we’ll set a date of 31, December, 2016 to receive Advent Conspiracy love offerings in Jesus’ Name.
