Taun Cortado is the Director of Media and Press Relations with Gospel for Asia. He joins Jim on the ABQ Connect line to talk about the ministry of Gospel for Asia, and their “Christmas Critter Campaign.” If you are looking to make a difference for eternity, consider a gift that has the power to completely change the lives of thousands of “Untouchables” in Asia.  You can give a poor family the gift of a goat, a pig, or a sewing machine for example. These gifts will open the door to the most precious gift of all, the Love of Jesus!  For more information about these special Christmas gifts go to www.knkt.com and click on the Gospel for Asia Christmas Critter Campaign banner.
