Christmas is a time when we celebrate the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ into the world some 2000 years ago as a baby, to live a sinless life amongst us and then die a cruel death on a cross to bring salvation and forgiveness of sins to those who would believe in Him. But there are still thousands of people who have never heard this message and live and die without hearing God’s good news.
SIM’s purpose statement reads “Convinced that no one should live and die without hearing God’s good news, we believe that He has called us to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in communities where He is least known.” Many of SIM’s missionaries are working amongst people who would otherwise never hear about Jesus and His love. Let me introduce you to some of them.
We are so grateful for these dedicated servants of God. They make sacrifices in their lives and those of their families to share the Good News with people who would otherwise live and die without ever hearing the Gospel.
Thank you for your partnership with SIM and our missionaries through your prayers and financial support. Without your support, these missionaries would not be able to go and serve amongst people that have not heard the Good News. Your gift of R100, R200, R500 or R1000 or whatever the Lord leads you to give, can help speed the message of God’s love to a needy world.
