A gift for tomorrow

Transformation is an important word at EduDeo Ministries. It's a key component of our vision, and it's what we see each day in the lives of the teachers, children and communities we serve. It holds a depth of meaning that goes far beyond being the buzzword of the year.

It is what we long for. And it is what God is doing throughout His creation and in each of our hearts day by day:

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 3:18 (NIV)

The butterfly is a striking symbol of transformation and beauty – which is why it is the main graphic in EduDeo’s logo. But perhaps even more beautiful is when many butterflies flutter together, creating a living, breathing mass of colour that shimmers through the air.

This is called a kaleidoscope. Also used to describe a diverse collection or a succession of changing patterns, it comes from the Greek words kalos, which means beautiful, and eidos, which means form.

At EduDeo, this term captures for us the coming together of many diverse parts to make up a beautiful whole picture of God at work – many individual stories of transformation fluttering together in God’s Kingdom.

The Kaleidoscope

That’s why we established The Kaleidoscope. Focused on leaving a legacy of transformation, we developed this initiative to recognize those who have chosen to use planned giving as a way to make an impact through EduDeo Ministries. Whether or not you can afford to give today shouldn’t impact your ability to make a difference tomorrow.  By joining The Kaleidoscope, you have the opportunity to see the beauty of your contribution now and leave a lasting legacy for the future.

Become part of The Kaleidoscope today.
Leave a legacy that transforms!
 

If you have chosen to make a legacy gift to EduDeo Ministries, we would love to hear about it so that we can add you to our Kaleidoscope wall of butterflies and send you a small token of our appreciation. Contact us today to find out more.
