Communities where He is least known

Immigrants, Refugees, and International Students

People from many of the communities where Jesus is least known are beginning to call the US home. In urban centres and on university campuses, individuals from an estimated 350 of these populations now live in the US as immigrants, refugees, and university students (Strangers Next Door; JD Payne). SIM USA’s Cultural ConneXions ministries and partner missions, such as Global Frontier Missions, minister among our neighbours to engage men, women, and children with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  

SIM-Asian Access Partnership for Japan

Over 99% of Japan’s 125 million people do not know Jesus, making this group the second largest population in the world that is living and dying without Him. In 2011, SIM and Asian Access (A2) began a strategic partnership to increase the number of missionaries to Japan. In close cooperation with A2 national partners, SIM and Asian Access missionaries focus on disciple-making and church planting where they see God ripening the soil for harvest, such as in areas that have been hit with tragic disasters. These missionaries also invest in younger leaders, and collaborate across denominations to accelerate the multiplication of disciples and congregations.

Prayers

1

Pray for receptivity to the gospel and a mighty working of the Holy Spirit among communities in the US that have yet to know God. Pray the US Church will compassionately engage these significant people, encouraging and loving them in the name of Jesus.

2

Pray for the mobilisation and zeal of the whole Church in the U.S. for ministry both locally and globally. Pray also for increased SIM partnerships among Hispanic, African-American, and Asian-American churches.

3

Pray for the mobilisation of missionaries committed to partnerships with Japanese leaders to multiply disciples and congregations in Japan.

4

Pray for holistic expressions of the gospel, effective evangelism and disciple-making, and Spirit-led collaborations and partnerships across Japan toward a church multiplication movement.
