5 Heartwarming Messages to Send your OFW Loved Ones this Christmas

Do you have loved ones who work abroad?

Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) have long been considered as the country’s modern heroes for the sacrifice they give not just to their families, but also to the whole country. 

This Month of Overseas Filipinos and International Migrants Day, take the time to craft that simple yet heartfelt message to let them know how much you miss and appreciate them. 

Here are some love notes to help you start: 

How are you? I hope you are safe and well. Please take care of yourself. 

Selflessness is deeply engraved in the hearts of OFWs. They value their families so much that sometimes, they set aside their personal needs or forget to take care of their own health. 

If you have loved ones who work abroad, take the time to check up on them and ask how they have been. Sending this message is a way to make them feel loved and cared for. 

Thank you for your sacrifices. I really appreciate all your efforts. 

Perhaps, you have already heard a bunch of stories about Filipinos who work abroad. Some stories bring joy and inspiration; some bring tears in your eyes. 

But if there is one thing that acts as a common denominator of all OFW stories, it’s their sacrifice. Some of them don’t really get to enjoy the fruits of their labor because they would rather save and send it right away to their loved ones. Thanking your OFW loved ones would show them that their sacrifices are seen and appreciated.

5 Heartwarming Messages to Send your OFW Loved Ones this Christmas

I am always here for you. Let me know if you need any help. 

There are OFWs who would rather keep their problems to themselves, so their loved ones won’t have to worry. Whether it’s homesickness, health concerns, or problems at work – they tend to bottle it all up. Some of them even spiral into extreme loneliness because they feel they have no one to talk to. 

Don’t forget to remind them that there is someone who is willing to spend time and listen to their stories. Reassure them that you are willing to lend a hand in case they need help and that they don’t have to go through everything alone.

Thinking of you this Christmas! How can I pray for you today? 

This year’s Christmas is quite different from the previous holidays. Because of the current pandemic, it could be extra difficult for OFWs to get in the festive mood while they think about their livelihood abroad and their family’s condition back home. 

Send this note to let them know that you remember them, especially during this wonderful season. Make them feel that even when you are miles apart, you are standing with them through prayers.

I love you. I thank God for your life! 

There is nothing quite like hearing those words from the people you love the most. 

Light up their day by reminding them that you truly love them. Make them feel that no distance nor pandemic can change the way you miss and value their existence. Let this short yet meaningful message show that you love them purely, deeply, and unconditionally – just as how God loves them.

But when God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. (Titus 3:4-6 NLT)
