No one should live and die without hearing the good news of Jesus Christ. Yet, that is still a reality for many people today. SIM has a history of more than 128 years of gospel work, first in Africa and now in more than 70 countries around the world. We know it is difficult to start work in areas where there are no missionaries. This initiative will support new ministry efforts in those areas, allowing SIM to launch and establish healthy, multicultural teams of faithful witnesses. They will demonstrate the goodness of Jesus Christ in communities where people currently live and die without ever having one Christian friend. Over the next two years, we will launch and support six teams of 12 to 15 faithful witnesses in new communities. We need three critical areas of support: prayer, finance, and people.
The initial locations have been chosen for Faithful Witness. Currently, none of them have any significant Christian witness. They were chosen because we have good local support networks and are confident we can place teams in those communities. Other locations will follow once the first teams are established.
The team is focused on community development and business opportunities, building relationships of trust with the community.
