Arise, Shine!

The people who walk in darkness
will see a great light;
Those who live in a dark land,
the light will shine on them. (Isaiah 9:2)
Arise, shine; for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. (Isaiah 60:1)

Thousands of years ago God made this promise through the prophet Isaiah to send His light to shine on those living in the shadow of death. That light came through the birth of a baby - Jesus. 

Ironically, it is the death of babies that is casting a shadow over families in China.

Under China’s One Child Policy, mothers who become pregnant with a second child are assessed huge fines (more than their annual salary); they face imprisonment, forced abortion and sterilization. Mothers who can avoid the authorities and give birth are often forced by their families to abandon their daughters in hopes of trying again for a son. Families who choose to keep their second child do so under the burden of huge fines that make it difficult to feed their families; these children are often refused schooling and health care.

Today, Pop Scripture Songs releases our first Christmas single – Arise, Shine! (Featuring our talented friend Chris Coleman and my husband and four kids!)  The digital download is available here.  All proceeds will go to an organization for the prevention of gendercide in China - All Girls Allowed. When you download this single, you’ll be helping mothers in China who are desperate to save their babies from abandonment or forced abortion. The minimum is $1 to purchase. However, you can give more or buy the song to send to others.

All Girls Allowed will use proceeds from our sales in two ways: to pay government fines for a mother so she is not forced to abort her baby and to give a monthly stipend to mothers who are trying to keep their babies but cannot afford to feed and clothe them.  All proceeds go directly to China.

Please share this Christmas single with your friends and family. Let’s spread the word and help save lives in China this Christmas!
