See the video in the upper right-hand corner to get an idea of where ECL's money will be going. It's places like Chacocente, Nicaragua that will be affected by our sacrifice. The video shows a place where people literally live in a giant trash heap. At Chacocente it's not uncommon for a child to step on a needle or for disease to decimate an entire family. This is worlds away from you and me. AC will also sponsor wells in Africa and other places in need.
I encourage you to think about doing something in this similar vein during the Christmas season. Last year, AC was able to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars by participating with other churches. This isn't a call to arms, just a shout out to let you know what makes my heart beat and my eyes tear up. Please watch the whole video when you have time (7-8 minutes) because it will touch you. Blessings.
