"Now, therefore, stand still and see this great thing that the Lord will do before your eyes."

1 Samuel 12:16

WORKERS FOR THE HARVEST

In surveying the great need before them, Jesus instructed His disciples to pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest for more laborers (Matt. 9:37-38). We at SIM USA believe the Lord is leading us to double the number of long-term workers we send overseas from the U.S. And so we are praying and trusting Him to do exactly that. We invite you to pray along with us, and as the Lord leads, consider whether He might be calling you or someone you know to serve cross-culturally with SIM.

We have created this page as a way to celebrate the Lord at work in sending out more laborers and to share specific prayer needs of those He is sending. Be sure to check here regularly for the latest updates and prayer requests.
