Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
In 2013 SIM celebrated our 120th anniversary as a mission. An international organisation with 1600 missionaries operating in over 60 countries around the world grew from the vision and sacrifice of three young men who travelled to Africa to pioneer mission work in the region called the Soudan, now the nation of Nigeria.As we reflect on our history, we are humbled by the dedication, endurance and sacrifice of hundreds of missionaries who have served, often in isolated and dangerous places, in order to share the love of Christ and minister to those in need.The story continues today and we have the privilege and opportunity to contribute a chapter of our own. SIM believes that it takes the entire church to reach the unreached with the message of the Gospel, so we are committed to partnering with churches, embrace diversity and be creative in approaches to mission.Because churches, donors, individuals, missionaries, as well as staff and volunteer, partnered together and prayed, SIM Australia facilitated and carried out vital ministries that shared the best news of Jesus, discipled believers, strengthened churches and alleviated human need.We give thanks to God that in 2013:* SIM Australia grew to 113 long term missionaries serving in 25 countries.* SIM Australia also facilitated: 28 short term missionaries serving in 12 countries, with an average length of service of 5.6 months. 5 teams serving in 4 countries.Thank you so much for your p
