Rescue centre teens pursue recovery in person

Transformed to serve: Peru's prison ministry

While in prison, Laura* became a regular at the English-speaking Bible study for women in Lima, Peru. As a foreigner, she had been lured there by a ‘too good to be true’ offer and trapped far from her family. Yet through the SIM Prison Ministry, Laura found friendship and evidence of God's love.

Lois fights to care for family

Lois*, a 50-year-old widow, has met severe difficulties, but since involvement with SIM’s HIV ministry, God has provided resources to sustain her during COVID and HIV complications.  

COVID increases vulnerabilities for people living with HIV

When Fai* arrived in Thailand as a migrant, she was unwell from HIV. By God’s hand, she connected with the local SIM Hope for Life ministry, through which she got access to treatment. But the COVID-19 restrictions disrupted her medication.

Spring of Life counselling needs funds to persist in HIV ministry

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to financial concerns for Spring of Life counselling centre. While they’ve pressed on in making HIV testing and care accessible in the community, the limited funding has left them unsure of what ministry will look like beyond 2021.

Not ready to retire: the old mission worker in Masai lands

An old man named Elijah from Kenya’s Masai lands has been at missions work since he was about 20. Ever since then, he’s been travelling around his community telling people about his Saviour. And he's still not interested in stopping.

God didn't give up on Joy

CW: child abuse. After the scars of her childhood, Joy found safety and acceptance on a football team. That's where she met Jesus: in the hands and feet of the coaches, in Scriptures tossed in conversation, in study of his Word and through church.

SIM Ecuador missionary kids grow in Christ virtually

The challenges of COVID-19 gave birth to a new support team for SIM Ecuador missionary kids (MKs). The team formed to meet social, mental, and spiritual needs in addition to educational needs when children noticeably grappled with changes.

Will he be proud of me

Following God is hard. Sometimes it’s at odds with our desire to make our family proud. But when we follow, we often get to see people come to faith in Christ. Read the testimony of one person who came to the Middle East and saw the family of God expand.

Faithful in study, fluent in hope

Sometimes the language learning phase for mission workers can seem like a detour. But language coach Candace who serves Faithful Witness teams sees it as a ministry in and of itself.
