The Choice - 2013 Autumn Church Resources

Sina lives in Tonle Batie village, Cambodia. Her smile cannot hide the poverty surrounding her. Her family doesn’t have enough food. Sina is painfully thin and her home is ramshackle. Nevertheless, Sina clings to the hope that the future can be better.
Her village church has a plan. It wants to give people the chance to learn new skills such as agriculture and business management with which they can earn more income.
It would be each family’s choice, of course. Some might say ‘no’, and the church would need to be prepared for that. But some would say ‘yes’, and that would make it a joyful day.

All over the world, churches can help their communities to find pathways out of poverty – if there’s enough long-term backing. Tearfund desperately wants to provide this backing – and that’s where this Autumn resource comes in…

*Use the film to tell Sina’s story.
*Hold a collection. Every cent raised will help us give people like Sina the chance to change their lives.
*Pray for Sina and the new church project in Tonle Batie.

Your prayers and giving will give Sina and many others like her the chance to build a better life for their families.

Sponsorship Ideas

Every year we have planned events which you can join.

But also come up with your own ideas and events, and download a sponsorship form to use.

Here are a few ideas for fund-raising through sponsorship:

  • Sponsored runs or other sporting events: Ever thought of running a marathon, or maybe just a fun run? Do you have kids in the church that could do a sponsored event?
  • Sponsored couch potato: Do absolutely nothing to end poverty! While everyone else is challenging you to get off your backside to end poverty, we’re challenging you to sit on it. Get sponsored to do diddly-squat all day.
  • Sponsored hair removal: Could someone in your church be sponsored to shave off their beard, or shave their head, or maybe even wax their chest? (Ouch!)
  • Sponsored abseil: Do you have a brave church member or even a church leader who is willing to venture down your church spire (or other building)?
