Our vision is twofold: to mobilise local churches to send Malawians into cross-cultural ministry, and to establish mission-sending agencies like SIM in Malawi.
We also want to equip and receive missionaries from new areas for ministry work in Malawi.
Viens et Sert
Pray for the church to understand the urgency of their calling.
Pray for unity of approach in the interdenominational Malawi Mission Initiative (MMI) – to work together with the churches to commence sustainable sending structures.
Pray for further sensitisation/mobilisation for cross-cultural mission - the churches are still focused on outreach in their own communities and we desire for them to see the larger picture as well.
Pray for establishment of cross-cultural mission training courses.
Maninka Audio Media Outreach (MAMO)
Our vision at MAMO is to produce quality recordings which share Biblical truth for the some two million Maninka people of Guinea, most of whom are living and dying without hearing the Gospel of Christ. Our goal is to produce creative audio programmes which will facilitate:
- helping Maninka-speaking people, especially the non-literate, to hear the Gospel of Jesus in an understandable, oral manner, consistent with their preferred learning style.
- discipling and training Muslim background believers.
- ministering to human need.
Viens et Sert
Pray for the Holy Spirit to do the work of convincing those of the majority religion to turn to Jesus, as they listen to MAMO recordings on their mobile phones via micro SD cards.
Pray for radio stations around Guinea willing to broadcast the eight God’s Story radio programmes.
Pray for God’s provision for a teachable, technology-savvy Guinean person to become the studio “techie.”
This ministry provides quality Christian education for the children of missionaries and others who seek to make a kingdom impact in Ethiopia. Through quality Christian education, Bingham Academy will reach and disciple children and families who live in Addis Ababa. Our students demonstrate integrity, confidence and care, and will be outward-looking followers of Christ who transform the world for God's glory.
Viens et Sert
Pray for people to join our team. We are currently under staffed and next year many key positions will need to be filled.
Pray for the development of key relationships with missions, churches or schools to help meet staffing needs.
Pray for more opportunities for staff to befriend those who don’t yet know Christ, especially our students and their families who are from atheist, Muslim, Hindu and Orthodox backgrounds.
Pray for continued safety of students, staff and families in our aging facilities.
Pray for funding for our new Elementary Building.
Remote Area Dweller Ministry
Our aim is to complete the Bible translation and oral translation of Bible stories into the San language of !Xoon.
These ministries take place to the remote Area Dwellers of the Kalahari Desert as we evangelise and disciple believers in the truth of God’s word.
Viens et Sert
Pray for our workers as they minister in very isolated settings.
Pray that as local people translate scripture passages orally these words would touch and transform their hearts.
Pray for successors for this ministry as several long-term workers will soon retire.
Pray the Lord would encourage more to support this ministry financially.
We want to see missionary service inquiries grow through our active, professional, and intentional use of social media to increase inquiry responses and online donations. Our main goals are twofold: to increase online activity to two inquiries per day, and to grow online giving from 40% to 60% of total receipts.
SIM Canada believes these goals can be achieved by more effective use of social media that will draw more ‘GO-ers’ and ‘GIVE-ers’ to the website. This will be done through providing more constant and consistent information for social media platforms to engage more people in God’s work through storytelling, as well as challenge more people to serve through constant and targeted promotion of ministry opportunities.
We are seeking a dedicated staff person or consultant to train and mentor new members in their communication.
Pray that we may engage the right staff person or hire the best social media agency to perform this role.
