George and Sara Salloum
Serving in Sudan
From: United States of America
Who we are:After many years working in the corporate sector, we decided to explore the possibility of international missions work and discovered that God was doing some amazing things through SIM. Saying "yes" to His call opened the door to the most fulfilling years of our lives. He continues to provide and equip us for new ministry opportunities, growing our faith and blessing our efforts.
We are originally from upstate New York and have two grown sons. Alex is married to Lindsay and serves as a 1st Lt. with the Army at Ft. Bliss in El Paso, TX. Adam serves on staff with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and is currently planting a new chapter at the University of South Carolina.
What we do:For the past 14 years, we have been located in Charlotte, NC where George has served as the Chief Financial and Operations Officer for SIM USA. Sara has served as a Research and Training Consultant preparing new workers for overseas ministry.
In April, 2013, we will begin a one-year assignment to serve as Acting Field Directors for South Sudan, one of SIM's fastest growing and most difficult fields. We will provide leadership, encouragement, and logistical support to an international team of workers who serve throughout South Sudan.
Because there is no housing or infrastructure in place, our workers live in tents and huts. Every 6-8 weeks, they travel to Nairobi, Kenya for rest and to re-supply. We will provide leadership support from Nairobi and travel frequently to visit locations throughout South Sudan.
