If you haven’t heard of Giving Tuesday, you’re not alone. Giving Tuesday is an international movement, on social media as #GivingTuesday, where people have a chance to give back. You can give a gift to those in their communities or even across the globe.

Don’t know what to do or how to get involved? Well, that’s easy. It’s as simple as giving to a needy family or donating to your favorite organization. However, OM is making it easy with their Giving Catalog.

“Well, we’re real excited this year. We feel like we have a lot of opportunities through our giving catalog. Lots of different opportunities for anybody that is interested in supporting the kind of work that we do,” OM’s Kevin Mount explains.

“There is anything from setting young girls free to providing a goat or a sewing machine, helping replace even chickens that were lost in the recent hurricanes in Haiti, [or] giving the Bible in different languages.”

OM’s Work

OM works on the ground in over 110 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North America, the Pacific, and in Latin America. And the gifts in OM’s Giving Catalog helps workers enter new communities and opens doors. These opportunities help provide environments for OM workers to meet practical needs, build relationships, and to share the Gospel.

Will You Pray?

Still, if giving isn’t a possibility will you pray? Pray for the many families and individuals who are facing needs this holiday season as well as for the people OM serves. Also, please pray for OM’s workers as the engage with new people groups and try to share the Word of God. Finally, if you would, pray too for open hearts in those being introduced to the Gospel.
