Thank you from TEARFUND

A note of thanks from Tearfund for CBC's fundraising efforts in 2016 

Dear Calderwood Baptist Church,

Thank you so much for your gift of £3022.32, which will help bring hope to the people of Chad.  We are so grateful to your congregation and thank you for your extraordinary generosity this Christmas.  Without prayers and gifts like yours, Tearfund simply could not fulfil its mission to follow Jesus where the need is greatest.  We thank God for every gift and we’re passionate about ensuring they’re used wisely.  Every pound goes a long way in enabling the world’s most vulnerable people to stand against poverty and disaster.


You would have heard the story of Jumana and her family in Chad.  Your support makes it possible for us to meet urgent needs and bring about long-term transformation in villages like theirs.  And huge change really is possible…

A few years ago, Amos and his wife Naume from Uganda were in a similar situation to Jumana.  They struggled to feed their four children, let alone send them to school.  Today, their children are well fed and thriving in school and Amos and Naume have a sustainable livelihood and powerful hope for the future.

You are a crucial part of transforming lives around the world.  Thank you for giving what you can to help others; thank you for joining us as we seek to follow and give like Jesus.  It’s thanks to the support of people like you that we can bring hope to the people who need it most.  Thank you for helping to change lives forever.

With every blessing
