Christmas is a time of anticipation and hope for Christians around the world. That Jesus Christ came to earth, God in human flesh as Redeemer and Reconciler is the reason for all weary souls to rejoice.
While the themes of Christmas are the same for each Christian, how we celebrate the advent of Jesus is not. The work that With Open Eyes does in fourteen countries around the world offers a fresh perspective on the impact not only of Christmas but the Gospel of Jesus. In the face of persecutions and hardships, the men and women we’ve met have been filled with the light of hope and joy, even as they fight against despair and worry.
To honor some of the countries we serve, we wanted to share the unique ways they celebrate Christmas. Traditions, meals, festivals and the like are all a part of the worldwide, yet unique way the body of Christ celebrates His birth.
