An alternative approach to holiday gift giving is offered at First Presbyterian Church, Kerrville this Saturday, Nov. 17, from 10 am to 3 pm and Sunday, Nov. 18, from 9 am to 1 pm. The church’s Ryan Hall will be filled with beautifully handcrafted items made by third world country artisans presenting you with the opportunity to give the gift of HOPE to someone you may never know.
The dollars you spend at the market will help nourish, educate and support individuals and families scattered all over the globe struggling to have a better life. A remote village might receive the gift of reliable electricity or life-giving clean water. A child in Haiti can have a chance at a better future with your gift of tuition, shoes or books. You may choose to give medical aid and supplies to ease pain and suffering of those without access to medical care. Or give a goat, bees or chickens through Heifer, and as they grow and reproduce, a whole village can be fed. These and many more ways to give HOPE will be available to you on Saturday, Nov. 17 and Sunday Nov. 18.
The gifts purchased at the market can honor a friend or loved one, provide your child the opportunity to help another child in need, or purely be your generous gift to help those who have little or no HOPE for a safe and healthy future.
