“…and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria; and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
Acts shares Jesus’ final command to his disciples to carry out a new task – taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Jesus makes it clear that the Gospel is for everyone, everywhere, all around the world.
SIM’s Home Ministry Team is committed to making disciples of Christ in communities where He is least-known. Traditionally, this happened by facilitating mission workers for overseas ministry. Today, there, are new opportunities with the unreached people groups living amongst us.
SIM is responding to these Gospel needs arising in Australia through the ministry of Alan Millhouse. Alan is mobilising mission workers to least-reached cultural groups within our nation, as well as overseas.
Alan said, “We are increasingly becoming more multicultural and different ethnic groups are growing, so there’s a real need to be able to connect with these least-reached and unreached people groups here in Australia.”
Alan was driven to action after he saw the lack of engagement with refugees and migrants in his own community. He was struck with the question: “Who’s going to reach them? Who’s going to share the Good News with them?”
This year, Alan journeyed with Angela and other mission workers to support them in local ministries reaching out to migrants and refugees across Australia. He has also mobilised a family who will leave to serve in Peru later this year.
Alan explained, “We have seen significant growth in the last few years in the amount of people getting involved in local and global ministries. We praise God because we know the Gospel is being shared and people are responding.”
This Easter, would you prayerfully consider supporting the Home Ministry Team’s vital work in making the Gospel global?
