92 DAYS OF HOPE FOR 34.5 MILLION CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD!
The last 92 days of this year — from October 1 to December 31 — represent your opportunity to share the life-transforming power of God’s Word with 34.5 million children and youth across the globe!
When we reach these final 34.5 million young people, we’ll meet the 2022 goal of sharing the Gospel with 138 million young people. We have already raised $8.5 million of the $11.5 million we need to make this possible. And that’s what 92 Days of Hope is all about! Remember, every $1 reaches 3 children and youth with God’s Word.
You’ll be engaging young people like Bairagi with the Scriptures …
This 15-year-old girl comes from a majority-Hindu nation, where she grew up believing in many gods who required offerings and sacrifices. But then you sent the Christmas Book of Hope to her village last year as part of the Christmas in Asia outreaches.
Bairagi chose to dedicate her life to Christ!
She was filled with joy to know that Jesus loves her, and others in her village have also received Christ as Savior. From this first Christmas outreach, a new fellowship is growing in Bairagi’s village.
Let’s take advantage of these 92 Days of Hope to rush God’s Word to 34.5 million more children like Bairagi by year’s end!
YOUR MOMENT TO PREPARE FOR A HECTIC SEASON
by President Rob Hoskins
What a joy to see the anticipation growing among our church and ministry partners in Asia as they prepare for their most far-reaching Christmas in Asia outreach yet!
Because so many Asian people love the music, lights, decorations, parties, and gift-giving that surround the holidays, it’s the perfect season of the year to reach out to the next generation with God’s Word.
As you prepare for the upcoming holiday season, let me share some thoughts that may help you connect more closely to the Christmas story this year.
Take time to think about Joseph and Mary in the moments after their Son’s birth. They held their baby and knew they were looking at God. Imagine how they must have felt!
They not only had to care for a newborn … but also nurture and guide the Son of God in every season, whether they were safe in a stable or running for their lives from a king. The image of Mary and Joseph physically carrying baby Jesus into their next season both warms my heart and convicts it.
As you consider the Advent next season, think about this: today, you and I, as Christians, carry Jesus through all our seasons into the world. Like Mary and Joseph, we’re responsible for the way His story is presented. They had a sacred appointment with the Savior, and so do we. How are you sharing Christ in you, the hope of the glory, with the world?
One way you do it is through your partnership with OneHope. Thank you! We’re honored to have you as part of the ministry family.
CHRISTMAS IN ASIA SHARES GOD’S WORD WITH THE NEXT GENERATION — EVEN IN LIMITED ACCESS NATIONS!
Your partners in Asia — and around the world — are preparing now for massive holiday outreaches! You’ll read about Christmas in Asia below …
And as you read about it, don’t think only about the numbers … 14.3 million to be reached in 21 nations and books in 26 languages … Although the numbers are astounding!
Also think about Maagh.
It was a Christmas in Asia outreach that changed everything for Maagh. He’s a young boy living in an Asian nation with fierce opposition to the Gospel —
Not only is the government itself anti-religion, but the traditional religion is oppressive and restrictive as well. People who leave that faith to choose Christianity can be ostracized and oppressed.
But last Christmas you sent our partners in Maagh’s town to share our Christmas-edition Book of Hope during the Christmas in Asia outreach.
“I was very excited to read the book,” Maagh recalls. “After I finished it, I wanted to know more about Jesus.”
He got a friend to go with him to the local church — and both children chose to follow Jesus!
This is the power of God’s Word to transform young lives, and we’re seeing this power explode across Asia and worldwide.
GET READY FOR CHRISTMAS IN ASIA! THE PERFECT MOMENT TO REACH THE NEXT GENERATION WITH GOD’S WORD
CHRISTMAS IN ASIA: 14,300,000 CHILDREN AND YOUTH TO RECEIVE GOD’S WORD!
- 17 nations
- More than 2.6 million children and youth
- 4 nations
- More than 11.6 million children and youth
92 DAYS OF HOPE — INCLUDING CHRISTMAS IN ASIA
OneHope Christmas in Asia can reach more than 14 million young people with God’s Word only if we’re able to get the Scripture engagement programs that make it possible to the partners who need them.
Right now around the world, we must provide God’s Word for another 34.5 million children and youth in order to reach the 2022 faith goal of engaging 138 million boys and girls with the Scriptures — this includes the 14 million who will be reached through Christmas in Asia.
These 92 Days of Hope, from October 1 to December 31, will decide whether these young people will receive God’s Word this year!
Thanks for your prayers and support in helping young people in Asia and beyond understand the true meaning of Christmas and their hope in Jesus.
YOU’RE SHARING THE GOSPEL WITH ASIAN CHILDREN AND YOUTH — EVEN IN LIMITED ACCESS REGIONS!
Christmas is the perfect time to present the Gospel to the next generation — especially to the children of Asia.
Millions across this continent have no idea what Christmas is, but there are still huge celebrations in many areas. Music! Lights! Parties! Decorations! Gifts! But no Jesus — so people wonder, “What is this holiday really all about?”
Our church partners answer that question by sharing the truth about Jesus with millions across Asia. This is the season when hearts are open, and with special outreaches and customized Scripture engagement programs, we can share the Good News in wonderful ways!
→ And Christmas in Asia outreaches are planned even in regions that are considered limited access — places in the Hindu, Buddhist, and Muslim worlds where there is opposition to the Gospel or Christians are at risk of persecution.
We can’t give the names of these nations or our partners there for security reasons — but you can be assured you’re giving a Christmas gift of God’s Word to young people in these nations!
14,300,000 children to be reached in 21 nations through programs in 26 languages!
YOU SENT HER STORIES OF HOPE … AND THEY ARE CHANGING EVERYTHING!
“I’m the memory verse champ at our club!”
That’s the beginning of 11-year-old Rethabile’s testimony about her life in Christ and her great love for learning God’s Word.
She didn’t always have this joy in her heart and light in her eyes … she lost both her parents and now is being cared for by her grandmother. It’s a difficult life for them in their home nation of Zimbabwe in Southeast Africa.
But Rethabile feels fortunate because she also has the support of her local church and the Bible club she attends with the other children.
“Throughout the week I eagerly wait for the one-hour journey to church where the Sunday school teachers teach me about God’s immense love for me through the Stories of Hope program,” she says.
Stories of Hope is an entire curriculum you helped OneHope develop and deploy to help children in developing nations receive basic Bible literacy. It shares 75 important stories from the Bible that introduce children to Jesus, shows them the foundations of their faith, and prepares them for a deep spiritual life and fulfilling walk with God.
It certainly is doing this for Rethabile.
“I have my own copy of the student book, so at home I can do extra activities that help me grow deeper in my knowledge and love for God,” she says. “The program helps me learn God’s Word through memorizing Scripture.”
That’s how she became the memory verse champ!
Thank you for reaching out to Rethabile and millions of children all over the world with the life-transforming power of God’s Word.
Rethabile in Zimbabwe is growing in God through the Stories of Hope program! For the sake of 34.5 million more children like her, please participate in 92 Days of Hope with your generous gift today!

SPAIN — TATIANA WAS AFRAID TO FALL ASLEEP …
Nightmares haunted Tatiana’s sleep — Night after night she would wake up screaming! Her mother didn’t know what to do, but her heart was breaking for her little girl.
Then Tatiana attended a OneHope summer camp sponsored by the local church, and began attending the Superbook program. She made a lot of new friends, and the camp counselors discovered her fears about falling asleep each night. They prayed for her to have peace and know that Jesus watches over her.
Soon Tatiana’s nightmares disappeared!
Her mother was so grateful she began attending church with Tatiana. Today Tatiana and her mother are both following Christ as Savior.
God’s Word. Every Child.
IN A MUSLIM NATION … YOU GAVE HER HOPE IN JESUS!
Taman lives in a majority-Muslim nation — in fact, her home country has one of the largest Muslim populations in the world.
She also lives in poverty — a family with five children and parents who struggle to provide for them.
Although Taman is only 12 years old, she felt like she carried the weight of the world on her shoulders. She worried if there would be enough food for her family, if she would be able to go to college or make a better life for herself … she even worried what would happen when she died.
Then you sent the Christmas Stories of Hope Book of Hope to Taman last year. Finally a book with answers! She discovered the story of Jesus and His love and power.
“When Jesus was tempted by the devil in the desert, He was so strong!” she says, speaking of one of her favorite stories. “He was able to defeat the devil’s temptations, and I know I can, too.” The story helped her know she has a future in heaven.
“I also love the story of Zacchaeus,” she says. “If even a person like Zacchaeus is accepted by Jesus, and Jesus is willing to go into his house, then I know Jesus loves me and will always be with me, too.”
Trusting Jesus as her Savior and provider has given Taman wonderful new hope for the future — and has swept away all the worries she used to have. Thank you for sending her God’s Word!
