By faith, we see:
- Christ’s love made known through his people to communities where He is least known.
- the people of Christ’s church in South Africa proclaiming the Word and actively promoting reconciliation as they embrace diversity and cross barriers to obey God’s call to reach the lost.
- many people trained and equipped to serve both locally and abroad.
- Mobilization and training for cross-cultural service
- Reaching children, youth and young adults
- Evangelism in Muslim communities
- Church planting in areas where Christ is least known
- Theological and leadership development
- Ambassador development
- Equipping workers
- Intentional discipleship
Communities where He is least known
The Muslim population in South Africa is growing. Some are new converts, often because of marriage, while others come from places such as Somalia, Pakistan and North Africa. We are hoping to develop programs to help the church reach out to its Muslim neighbors and show Christ’s love.
South Africa is home to the largest number of Indians residing outside of India. Hinduism is their main religion, and very few Christian workers serve among them.
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 is leading many people astray.
Pray for true reconciliation and transformation in South Africa.
Pray for training for leaders to more deeply understand the Scriptures.
Pray for an awakening among many South African churches, especially those without a history of sending missionaries.
Pray for effective training for service in cross-cultural missions.
Pray for workers to take the gospel to and minister among the least reached, including children, youth, young adults and Muslims.
Pray for the development of an SIM ambassador program in South African churches.
Pray for a spirit of oneness in purpose and heart among all those who serve with SIM South Africa.
