God’s generosity in sending His Son cannot be matched. It’s the greatest gift ever given! For 80 years here at Multnomah our students have celebrated Christ’s birth and shared generously at Christmas time. Let me share two recent instances.
On Giving Tuesday (December 1), our students collected food for the hungry by partnering with the Oregon Food Bank. Despite the limitations of their student budgets, they donated four large barrels of food and personified God’s generosity. It was really amazing to see!
Then, when hearing of needs within their midst, MU students surprised two other students by taking up collections to send one to Thailand for a missions trip and the other home to Africa for Christmas. No fanfare. No announcements. No applause. Simply sacrificial sharing so there was no needy one among them.
Why do we give to those in need and share with those who have limited resources? God’s greatest gift to us inspires our greatest response to others!
At this time we are praying that God will provide for the financial needs of our students through generous giving. Would you pray with us? To date, Multnomah alumni and friends have given $715,388 toward Student Aid of our $1.45 million goal for this fiscal year.
God, indeed, is with us at Multnomah, and our students’ hearts are reflecting His character through their generosity. Will you join with our students and remember Multnomah in your year-end giving? We invite you to invest and participate in what God is doing at Multnomah.
Your gift will be doubled, thanks to God’s provision of a match, so that Multnomah students will be equipped to show His generous love for a lifetime of ministry and service.
Growing in generosity,
Rev. G. Craig Williford, Ph.D.
