Although rare, sometimes a missionary must end their agreed term of service prematurely. This could be due to a variety of reasons including civil conflict or natural disasters, illness/injury, family or personal situation, or insufficient financial support.
If a missionary returns home prematurely, they and SIM will contact you and their other supporters to let you know their situation.
When this happens, the missionary will need your continued prayers and financial support until such time as they are able to again return to the field. If their situation changes and they are not able to return to the field, or other ministry with SIM, SIM Australia and the missionary will let you know. You can, of course, change or cancel your pledge at any time by contacting our Partner Relations team on 1300 746 580 or via our contact form
