Christmas in Togo

Joy unwrapped

"And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger." Luke 2:12


On Christmas Eve, it’s good to be reminded that even the greatest gift appeared small and unassuming. During this Advent season we’ve unwrapped inspiring stories from children whose gifts and talents may have gone unnoticed if they didn’t have the support of the local church and a loving sponsor.

We want to say a massive thank you for all your support throughout 2016 and hope that you have enjoyed unwrapping joy this Advent as part of our calendar. It’s because of you that we can share these stories of transformation and hope.

Here’s a special Christmas message from children in Togo, just for you:



Prayer: Heavenly father, thank you for sending your son Jesus. We pray people’s hearts will be open to receiving the good news this Christmas time.

From everyone at Compassion UK, we’d like to wish you a very happy Christmas and a peaceful new year. God bless.
