Videos

Use the following videos to promote the Thanksgiving Offering for the World Evangelism Fund.


Video #1: Thank Offering 2014
In the Old Testament, people gave a thank offering as a way of saying "thank you" to God. Today, we give because we are thankful for what the Lord is doing in the lives of people around the globe. The stories represented in this video are all true stories of how God has worked in the lives of people around the world. All stories are used with permission, and in some cases portrayed by actors.

Video #2: Melodie's Story
When Melodie was just 14, she started a Christian radio program for children all over the island of Madagascar. She wanted to tell other children like her about God’s gift of eternal life, because she was so grateful for Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. Through her radio program, Melodie is able to reach people who would otherwise never hear the Word of God.
