PROCLAIMING GOD'S GOOD NEWS
BY FAITH, WE WORK TO SEE:
The love of Jesus known through His people and churches.
The people of SIM South Africa growing in their love and knowledge of the Lord to passionately carry out God’s call to reach the lost.
The people of His church in South Africa actively promoting reconciliation as they embrace diversity, and growing in their passion to evangelize and send servants to least-reached communities.
Communities where He is least known
Muslims in the Western Cape
Although South Africa still has a small population of Muslims, this movement is growing rapidly. The country has also attracted many Muslims from other countries, such as Somalia, Pakistan, and others from North Africa.
Hindus in KwaZulu-Natal Province
South Africa is home to the largest number of Indians residing outside of India. Hinduism is the main religion of these people, and very few Christian workers serve among them.
False Teaching Movements
Many new churches are springing up in South Africa, but there is a trend in these churches toward false teaching—a blend of Christian and African religious practices—that is leading many people astray.
Pray for an awakening among South African churches that do not have a history of sending missionaries. Pray they will have effective service in cross-cultural missions.
Pray for workers to take the gospel to the least reached, including children, youth, young adults, and Muslims, and to engage in effective ministry amongst them.
Pray for the churches of South Africa to seek reconciliation and desire multicultural congregations.
Pray for teachers to come alongside churches and schools to train up leaders to have a deeper understanding of the Scriptures.
Pray for deeper understanding of God’s Word and a spirit of oneness amongst staff, volunteers, and missionaries in SIM.
