As I sit down to write this letter, I am humbled and grateful for the incredible journey we’ve been on together as the Impact Nations family. It’s a privilege to stand with you, united by our shared commitment to demonstrate the Gospel to some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. Each year, as our global team prepares the Gift Catalog, it becomes a reminder of God’s faithfulness, a celebration of transformation, and a testament to the love and compassion that reside in our global family.
The 2023 Gift Catalog is our biggest and most exciting one yet. Once again, our team had to add four more pages to make space for the many stories of lives touched and transformed by your generosity. With each turn of the page, you will encounter stories of rescue, restoration, and redemption— testimonies of individuals and families who have experienced the Kingdom of God through the Impact Nations family.
The Impact Nations global team is so excited about this collection of stories, as each narrative represents countless other lives that have been similarly impacted. I encourage you to share this publication with family and friends, or keep hold on to it as a reminder that you are a part of a movement that is making a huge difference. Just don’t forget that the stories of restoration you are about to read could not be possible without donors like you.
My favourite section is our new “How It Started, How It’s Going” page, where we look back at examples of the extraordinary growth and powerful results we have seen in our “three things”: Journeys of Compassion, Relief Efforts, and Skills & Business Development. For the first time we were able to include stories from Malawi, where we have a new partnership that is already resulting in remarkable fruit (literally!). Although we couldn’t fit them in this year’s catalog, stay tuned for great stories from Pakistan and the Philippines, as well.
Our collective impact is a reflection of the life of Christ in each of us. As Dad likes to point out, wherever we go, we change the atmosphere, turning the impossible into the possible. You hold in your hands the power to rescue people from sickness, poverty, and spiritual darkness. With each gift, you are changing the realm of possibilities for thousands of individuals.
As we move forward together, I ask you to give generously, knowing that your generosity is changing lives and rewriting the possibilities for countless people around the world.
Thank you for being part of the Impact Nations family and for your unwavering commitment to making a difference in the world. Together, we are shining God’s light into the darkness, and together, we are bringing hope, healing, and transformation.
With gratitude and anticipation,
Chief Executive Officer
