Advent - kindness

Love is patient and kind (1 Corinthians chapter 13 verse 4)

Ian Gow writes from Scotland

I have been amazed this last year that when lives in this country have been restricted, reduced and affected by Covid, many supporters have increased their help for the Banyan Tree tuition groups. Kindness is not easy to define it can be a mixture of many things: thoughtfulness, generosity and helping others, but often kindness is not spectacular. We believe that education for the less fortunate will profit all. On day one Ron talked about planting a tree and watching it grow – we believe education will help a person grow, a community grow and in turn a nation to grow.


Our heavenly Father, thank you for the opportunity to help a nation grow.  Bless those who receive this help and give them strength to achieve their potential.

[Our thanks to Ian who raises money in Scotland to fund three of these tuition groups.]
