86 per cent of people without the gospel have no Christian witness and while many organisations send workers and resources to areas where there is already a church established, Serving In Mission wants the gospel to reach every tongue, tribe and nation.
The Faithful Witness scheme was launched in February 2019 to introduce the gospel strategically to communities living and dying without hearing of Jesus.
Through Faithful Witness, SIM works with partner organisations and recruits from churches across the globe, to share the good news in difficult places and where there is little or no Christian witness.
The teams are multicultural, multi-ethnic and multi-skilled with a desired for two or more workers on each team to come from the country in which they are serving.
“For people who have been hoping and praying for workers, we have workers on their way,” says SIM International Director Joshua Bogunjoko.
Stories and ministries
Pray for pioneering teams
Currently, our Faithful Witness teams are focused on high-population communities in Chad, Mali, Nigeria, and Thailand—places that are challenging for gospel outreach and, sometimes, even hostile toward Christianity and missionaries.
Each team is includes 10-12 workers from at least three different continents. This is key; when multi-ethnic mission workers are united in ministry, it is evident that Christianity doesn’t belong to just one culture but is available to everyone.
We are praying for the Lord to work powerfully through these teams – and through further Faithful Witness teams about to launch in three new countries!
