Three initial locations have been chosen for Faithful Witness. Currently, none of them have any significant Christian witness. They were chosen because we have good local support networks and are confident we can place teams in those communities. Other locations will follow once the first three teams are established.
A team will work with partner agencies in eastern Chad, among people who have no church in their mother tongue.
The Hassaniya people are open to receiving workers who will live among them and learn the language and culture, There are no more than four known believers among millions of Hassaniya.
The city of Ayutthaya is 40 miles north of Bangkok. A small team is already forming and will focus on sports, community health education and English language learning ministries.
WHAT WILL THE TEAMS DO?
Often, the gospel is experienced through living life-on-life with friends, neighbours and colleagues. By expressing the gospel in the context of personal, authentic relationships, many will be drawn to the love of Christ into relationship with him. Teams will be multi-skilled, so a range of possible skill sets are welcome. Some examples include veterinary surgeons, animal husbandry experts, entrepreneurs, accountants, nurses and engineers.
WHO WILL LEAD THESE TEAMS?
The leaders will either be SIM workers or workers from partner organisations with relevant experience. They will generally already be in the country or region and have experience doing ministry in the culture. They will also have a passion to help others start ministry.
WHO CAN JOIN A TEAM?
Teams will be multicultural and come from a wide variety of backgrounds. The make-up and dynamics of the team are critical to its success (John 17:22-23). Christians living in community together display the uniqueness of life in Christ. We are currently mobilising teams and funds for Chad, Mali, and Thailand, but have opportunities in many more places.
