Does you long for Jesus' return? Before his kingdom is established, the gospel is to spread to all nations (Matthew 24:14).
This people group is comprised of over one million people with a distinct language not mutually intelligible with any other language in the world. Their mother tongue currently has no written form. One Christian couple from the ethnic majority has gone to live among them with the hope of sharing the good news about Jesus with them. Until 2012 no international organization existed whom God had led to invest significant energy into planting a church among them. They have neither written Bible translations nor audio Bible recordings in their mother tongue, and the nearest major city with an international presence is more than a seven-hour bus ride.
The SIM leadership team has made the bold decision to invest prayer, energy, leadership, and resources into seeing these people come to know Jesus. We are ready and willing to build a team to make this happen. Through eyes of faith we see in the future a culturally relevant expression of the body of Christ among these people.
