Christmas Animals OrnamentThis Christmas, give the gift of a new beginning with ZOE Ministry (GBGM Advance #982023)

In Africa, a cow, goat, or even rabbits can be the first step toward transforming the life of an orphan. ZOE Ministry’s Orphan Empowerment Program equips these children with essential life skills such as farming, animal husbandry and small business training while sharing the good news of Christ’s love. An animal can provide income, fertilizer for fields, and nourishment as orphans journey through the program.

Thanks to your gift, within two to three years ZOE Ministry empowers orphans to escape the cycle of poverty and start living lives of dignity and hope. Honor your family, friends and colleagues this Christmas with a gift in their name that transforms an orphan’s life. When you place your order online or by mail, ZOE Ministry will send you an ornament-style gift card of each of the animals ordered to give to your colleagues, friends and loved ones.

One Cow     $400
One Goat    $60
One Pig    $50
Group of Four Rabbits    $20
One Chicken    $10
