It can be easy to see the icy peak of an iceberg.
What is harder to see is the strong base hidden under the water.
In a similar way, SIM Australia’s Home Ministry team help form an important base for our missionaries serving on the field. Their behind the scenes work supports our missionaries in so many different ways - from pastoral care, to mobilisation, to finance. Their labour frees up our field missionaries to invest more time in relationships and ministries in communities where Christ is least known.
Someone who understands what it is like to serve “above water” as a missionary, and “below water” as a Home Ministry worker is Jenny Fallon. This year, Jenny is celebrating thirty years of service with SIM Australia. Jenny has worked in a variety of roles
in West Africa including nursing, midwifery, teaching in a Bible College, administration and
acting as Deputy Director and Interim Director.
Jenny currently serves as NSW/ACT Member Care Coordinator. As Jenny says, prayerful and pastoral support of our missionaries is critical to seeing them “thrive not just survive”.
Another Home Ministry Worker, Anna Zhang has recently taken up a role as a SIM Mission Mobiliser and has just set out
on the daunting journey of raising support.
Despite the important role of Home Ministry staff, many are under supported. Just like our field missionaries, they are not paid a ‘normal’ salary and depend on financial support from churches, family and friends. This Easter, would you consider helping our missionaries ‘thrive not just survive’ by supporting our Home Ministry Fund?
