Jesus invited Peter and Andrew to “come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” (Matt 4:19 NLT).
These brothers left behind their nets and with them their livelihood, security and identity.
In 1893, SIM’s founders left behind their comforts to reach the least-reached in Africa.
Fast-forward to 2002, the Sim family from Victoria headed out to Benin, West Africa.
Neil Sim was able to use his skills as a mechanic, to disciple Beninese men and eventually to become SIM Benin’s Project Manager.
From there, God called the Sim family back to Australia to serve with the SIM Home Ministry Team. This team facilitates Aussies to leave their nets and become Christ’s witnesses in communities where He is least known.
A key part of Neil’s journey has been walking alongside enquirers and applications who are testing a call to mission.
“Neil has helped me navigate my journey of mission. He has been able to answer my questions, ease my worries and celebrate victories with me. I thank God for mobilisers like Neil!”
-Ruth Davies, SIM applicant preparing to serve in Thailand
