Joshua 4 brings us to a pivotal point in biblical history.
Israel crossed the Jordan on dry land … entering into the place God promised they’d inhabit. Upon their crossing God commanded them to appoint 12 men to set up stones of remembrance at Israel’s camp as a testimony for generations to come.
“In the future, when your children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord. When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever.” -Joshua 4:6-7
Scripture after scripture give testament to the people of God’s commitment to recall His works on their behalf to future generations. The Psalmists and Prophets of the Old Testament write often of crossing the Red Sea, conquering foes, and the steadfast love of the Lord. The same can be said of the authors of the New Testament.
The practice of remembrance seems to be a spiritual discipline of sorts and proof that we’re prone to forget and wander from the goodness of God. It’s in our remembering that we are once again brought to a point of praise.
It is this spirit of remembrance that drives East-West to host “Celebrating 25 Years”—an anniversary event.

In the His kindness, we can look back at over two decades of God using our field workers to illuminate the world’s spiritually darkest places with the marvelous light of Jesus Christ … and we want to give Him praise and glory.
We’d be honored to have you join us in setting down stones of remembrance and celebration for this ministry milestone. Will you “come and see what God has done” through East-West in the last 25 years (Psalm 66:5)?
