Mission for Area People (MAP) would like you to join us to celebrate the birth of our Savior as we share a daily Advent Calendar filled with heart-warming stories of grace, compassion, and caring for others. This online happening offers a glimpse of how Mission for Area People has helped the "least of these my brothers," and how others have left an impression and touched our organization. 

As we countdown in preparation of God's gift of his only son, we hope this brings you joy and hopefulness for a better future.

Do you know anyone that would like to receive the Advent Calendar? Tell them to sign up at You will see an Advent page on our website devoted to the countdown.
