Unwrap Hope Among The Unreached
Scripture sings out the joy of the Messiah’s arrival, from the praise of the shepherds to the reverence of the Magi.
And yet, not everyone will share in that joy this Christmas. Billions of people around the world do not know the reason for celebrating Christmas because they don’t know Christ.
You have the opportunity to bring joy and hope this Christmas. In this gift catalog, you will find ways to take the gospel to unreached people around the world through supporting East-West. Plus, you will receive a free handcrafted bread tray with any monthly gift of $25 or more!
Help us spread the joy of Christmas in the most unreached places this year.
Of the billions of dollars given toward Christian missions every year, it’s estimated that less than 1% goes toward efforts to reach unreached people groups. With more than 3 billion people worldwide still considered unreached, your gift is needed to take the gospel to every tribe, tongue, and nation.

Imani grew up in a loving home in East Africa. She had dreams of going to school and becoming a doctor, and her parents supported her ambitions. But her life came to a screeching halt when her parents unexpectedly passed away. Imani was only a teenager.
Devastated and orphaned, Imani went to live with her aunt and uncle in a rural town, hoping that she would still be able to attend school. But girls in rural parts of her home country are often prevented from pursuing an education, and Imani’s aunt, Syandene, kept her at home to work. Her aunt also secretly forced her to practice witchcraft and threatened to kill Imani if she told her uncle. This went on for months, and Imani thought there was no escaping this life she felt trapped in.
