Viens et Sert

This would involve planning team events, meetings, training programs, and helping the bookkeeper revise accounts or other administrative tasks that would suit the gifting of the applicant. The applicant would work closely with the director on tasks such as board and team leader meetings, planning and direction, and prayer support amongst a host of other tasks that would enhance the impact of the current director.

2

Pray for clarity with regards to the vision and direction of SIM Ecuador.

3

Pray for our leadership team and their decisions for the future.


International Leadership and Services

Have you ever thought what it takes for someone from Australia to serve as a missionary to Kenya? How about sending someone from Korea to Ecuador? Or from Nigeria to Canada? It takes more than a plane ticket.

SIM has been sending missionaries to communities where Christ is not yet known since 1893. Today, more than 4000 workers from over 60 different nationalities serve in over 70 countries. SIM’s vision and purpose is consistent across all of its mission sites. This unity as well as ability for people from any country to participate in God’s plan for this world are prayerfully guided by SIM’s International Leadership and Services.

Through their ministry of leadership and support services, barriers are cleared for those whom God is calling to serve cross-culturally. These are a few of the vital resources provided to the mission:

• Global leadership and mission training

• Cross-cultural ministry development in 70+ countries

• Worldwide personnel, financial and technical support to remote mission locations

• Direction and planning for the expansion and long-term sustainability of SIM priority ministries

• Multi-lingual communication resources needed to share the gospel

From stories of restoration for widows through savings groups in India, to sharing the good news with unreached coal miners in the treacherous mountains of Bolivia, the Kingdom work of SIM and its partners is transforming communities today.  From courageous teams re-entering an area devastated by terrorist activity in Nigeria, to trauma healing for the marginalised mothers of disabled children in Niger, we bear witness to the impact of God’s hand moving among the least-reached.  And in all of SIM’s ministries, one can glimpse the imprint of the global leadership and support services that have made local initiatives a success for over a century.

Services communautaires

La SIM cherche à répondre aux besoins de la communauté pour pouvoir annoncer la Parole de Dieu. ODD (Organisation de Développement Durable) a commencé en 2012 pour équiper l’église à faire des services communautaires. 5 ans plus tard, le village dispose de l’eau courante; des réparations de route ont lieu avec l’aide des églises locales et des villageois, et une école agricole teste (entre autres !) de nouvelles méthodes de fertilisation de la terre, utilisant les ressources naturelles disponibles sur place.

Stories about this Ministry

Sharing the light of Jesus with villagers in Niger

As soon as I get out of the car, I am greeted by six kids eager to learn. Their first question is: "Did you bring the video?"

Transformed by short-term missions

For many years, I have felt that the Lord was calling me to something. I prayed for wisdom and clarity but a restless and unsettled feeling plagued me.

Planting seeds of hope

The Esan region of northeast Thailand is often described as one of the hardest places to do ministry in Thailand. Christians are few and far between, Buddhism is strong, and drug addiction is widespread.

Light at the end of the tunnel

I took a deep breath and reconsidered my options. The most appealing choice for me would require us to backtrack several miles to the place we took the shot cut and then climb over a high mountain pass.

Lessons from a Peruvian prison

When I began working with foreign English speaking women on parole, I had no idea the work would include ministering to children, but when several women brought their children to the Bible study and we couldn’t provide child care, we had to get creative.
