Welcome to SIM Malawi
SIM Malawi is a Christian mission organisation dedicated to sharing the love of Christ in Malawi in both word and deed. We do this in five areas as we look to: Pursue the Unreached, Build the Church, Reach Children and Youth, Impact the HIV/AIDS Crisis, Advance Mission
Special Feature - Project MW96755 Missionaries from New Contexts
Project Vision : Supporting the placement of Missionaries to Malawi from New Contexts (MNCs) / majority world countries. – We would like to enable missionaries from non-traditional sending countries and churches with emerging mission movements to take part with their unique skills and gifts in the various ministries under SIM Malawi’s mandate. We are seeking to gradually increase the number of placements of MNCs on our field. The initial project duration of three years will assist us in gaining experience regarding the cooperation with the various countries, churches and sending offices which will certainly lead to a finetuning of the project in the future.
For the last 12 months, Abera and Bizunesh have persisted in visiting Kwitunji village to build on the relationships that they began while living there. Not an easy task in itself given that they endured quite a bit of opposition at the time.
Travel to Kwitunji has not been easy, as it is 16kms down a dirt road with very little public transport available. Abera had proclaimed “I can walk”. But fortunately as part of their language and culture learning, Abera & Bizunesh developed a strong relationship with a Malawian Yao missionary couple working for CAPRO Mission.
So Abera has been travelling together with Daniel on his motorbike regularly into Kwitunji to meet with seekers and a handful of believers.
Bizunesh has been travelling by minibus to Namwera with Feliya to meet with a group of Yao ladies for discipleship and encouragement. On one occasion travelling back late at night, they were involved in a vehicle accident and Feliya’s leg was broken. Praise God she is now recovered and they can continue this discipleship ministry.
Perserverance is clearly a characteristic that will be needed in full measure.
Please praise God for:
- ongoing ministry opportunities even in the village they had to leave 18 months ago
- for growing relationships
- the provision of a house
Please pray for:
- Abera & Bizunesh, their sister-in-law, and the wider family following the death of his brother
- safe return to Malawi
- God to open the doors to further ministry around Namwera, and for perserverance even in the face of difficulties
- for more missionary candidates from new contexts to be identified to come to Malawi
