Community Services

SIM seeks to meet the needs of the communities it serves in. This opens doors to share the love of Jesus Christ with others. ODD (Open Door Development) started in 2012 to equip the Church to do community services. Seven years later, the village is equipped with running water, road repairs are frequently organized with the help of local churches and villagers, and an agricultural school tests new ways to have a more efficient way of using resources to grow plants.

You can learn more about who they are, what their goal is, and how they want to achieve it by visiting their website: http://www.opendoordevelopment.org/ or visit their Facebook page : Open Door Development

Orphan and Vulnerable Children Ministry

Nos concentramos en hacer que Cristo sea conocido para los niños vulnerables y sus cuidadores mientras satisfacemos sus necesidades educacionales, físicas, y psicosociales. Ministramos a los niños hechos vulnerables por la pandemia HIV/SIDA en Zimbabue. Ministramos a los huérfanos y a aquellos cuyos padres están enfermos. Apuntamos a mantener a estos niños en la escuela asistiéndolos con pagos escolares, materiales de escritura y uniformes. Ayudamos a los que viven solos con paquetes de comida y semillas de modo que puedan cultivar.

Entrenamos a voluntarios de la iglesia para satisfacer las necesidades físicas, sociales, emocionales, y espirituales de los niños que visitan en varias comunidades. Los asistimos con financiamiento para empezar y mantener el ingreso generando actividades para apoyar a sus familias y asistirnos en el ministerio. Nuestro principal deseo es mostrar el amor de Dios a los niños y ayudarlos a aprender a vivir vidas temerosas de Dios construyendo el reino de Dios.

 

Oracíones

1

Que Dios proteja a los niños de Zimbabue de abusos y enfermedades.
