For over a year, we have been charging a modest fee of $5 for a yearlong subscription. We did this to allow for as many people as possible to be able to afford G4C. However, we still realized that this excluded some people. Some people couldn’t afford it. Others couldn’t do online transactions. So, we decided to take a leap of faith: Girlz 4 Christ is now FREE!
Anyone can subscribe, so spread the word! All you have to do is send your name, birth date, state/country, and e-mail to Girlz4Christ@yahoo.com. (If you are under 13, we’ll also need your parent’s name and e-mail.) Then, we will sign you up for a FREE subscription to Girlz 4 Christ Magazine!
Even though we are excited to be able to offer you FREE subscriptions, there is still a cost for us. We have NO paid staff, all of us are volunteers, but we still have the costs of web hosting and office supplies. If you would like to support Girlz 4 Christ, you would be helping to spread the Good News around the world to girls of all races, ages, economic standings, and nationalities. You can make a donation by using the PayPal button in the right hand sidebar.
Thanks for sticking with us for more than a year. We hope that we can spread God’s love even further!

If you are able to read this, then you are one of the people on Earth fortunate enough to also be able to read the Bible. But there are 350 MILLION people on this planet who can’t read the Bible at all. Why? The language the speak does not have a written alphabet, so they do not have a Bible.
Wycliffe is a ministry whose goal is to allow everyone in the world to be able to read a Bible in their own language. They are working towards this goal by sending missionaries to these unreached people to learn the language and create a written alphabet for their language. You can always help out Wycliffe by supporting their cause financially. But for the next several weeks, they are inviting you to do more.
Play the Wycliffe game “In Other Words” by clicking here. This game allows you to answer Bible trivia. As you answer the questions correctly, you will translate a Bible verse. Earn points for answering the trivia, translating the verse, and doing other bonus activities. As you earn points, you can be eligible for some cool prizes, like bookmarks, bracelets, iPads, iPods, and even a trip to Florida! So what are you waiting for? Sign up and play every day!

Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.” – Mark 12:41-44
I love the above true story because in it, Jesus explains that it doesn’t matter if you give a lot or a little- any gift can make a BIG difference! I’d like to explain to you how giving to G4C, whether you can afford to give a large amount or just two copper coins, can make a BIG difference!
We at G4C believe in giving tithes and offerings as a sacrifice to the Lord. Everything that has been given to us is a gift from Him, so it’s the least we can do to share His blessings with others. I believe that this sort of giving should be done on a personal level, but G4C as an organization also gives. Because of our limited funds, we have NO paid staff members, or an office space, or a fancy program or anything like that. But we still take an example from the widow that Jesus saw and give out of what we have to bless others. Here are a few things that we have done recently:
-We gave the the World Vision education fund.
-We donated soaps and other necessities to Care Bags 4 Kids.
-We provided shoes for the impoverished in South America through Soles 4 Souls.
-We’ve given money to several mission organizations so that teen girls can participate in missions experiences.
-In addition, we have sent Girlz 4 Christ magazine to dozens of girls in tough situations at no cost to them.
When you donate to G4C, and even when you purchase items from our shop, you are supporting a ministry that is affecting so many girls and their families in the name of Jesus Christ. You are also helping us support worthy causes like the ones mentioned above. Please prayerfully consider helping to finance our ministry, and with it, you can support people all around the world!
