FACT: SIM has a global healthcare network

A few months ago, I was meeting with the SIM U.S.A Director, to do some strategic thinking. He mentioned a statistic that stopped me in my tracks.

...that SIM has more than 40 healthcare teams operating around the globe. An amazing statistic when you think about it.

And that means there are endless service opportunities to minister for Christ in the healthcare setting. Almost any healthcare skill is needed somewhere around the SIM-world right now. Check out the chart of opportunities on page 6 and 7. Do you know someone in your family or church congregation - even you - that can be challenged to pray about using their healthcare skills to serve in mission? If you cannot go will you pray for more workers to feel led to serve Him? Will you commit to support a healthcare worker in prayer or maybe finances? Donating to the ‘Work of the Mission’ (Project 084700) enables us to process and train workers for service or if you feel led to support a specific healthcare worker you can donate to an ‘unlisted missionary’ and we will assign your gift to a healthcare worker in need of financial support.

 As you read the stories of what God is doing in and through these healthcare workers, I think, like me, you will see what a tremendous opportunity the role of health practitioners have in reaching the unreached for Christ, demonstrating God’s love and compassion in tangible ways.

 We’re Searching

In our most recent Board Meeting I announced to the Board that I would like to step away from the Executive Director’s role while remaining an active member of SIM. I have been in the role for 10 years, and I believe now is the time for someone new to step into the role with fresh ideas and vision. I have thoroughly enjoyed leading SIM Canada. It has certainly been challenging but also rewarding.

A search committee has been set up to find my replacement. The intent is to have the new Director in place by July 2022. Will you pray with us that God leads us to the right candidate? 

And a BIG thank you

This past month we have asked donors who are regular online supporters to transition to a new donation platform. Actually. it’s an existing platform that we needed to step away from a few years back due to some significant computer related issues affecting reliability.

We now feel that we can fully support the platform once again. and provide a better service to you - and save some processing fees. I just wanted to thank those who have assisted us in making this change. It is certainly very much appreciated.
