A part of the answer

I will never forget the article I read about a teenage girl who had to bury her mother and two sisters in the desert sand. This article haunted me. I asked, “Who is on the other side of the Mediterranean welcoming such a victim of human suffering? Who is there to embrace her and offer her hope and healing?”

Reaching our diaspora neighbours

Want to start to reach out and connect with members of the diaspora in your community, but not sure where to begin? Here are some starting points...

Finding Jesus in a foreign country

When Tamara* left Africa to go to university in France, her whole life changed. She tells her story... 

Showing hope amidst despair

We’ve all seen the pictures; desperate families walking away from destroyed homes, little children being carefully passed over barbed-wire fences, dangerously overcrowded boats arriving on European shores. AIM missionary, Jonathan, and local partner, Pedro, talk about how they are seeking to share hope with these displaced peoples. 

Fleeing to safety

As Joseph* came to the Zambian border after running and walking through the night, he couldn’t even think. His mind was numb. He prayed without words, wondering if he’d ever see his wife again.

Joining the team

Sally* joined AIM’s Community Outreach team which partnered with Derek and Claire’s* church to support and encourage them in reaching out to their local, multicultural community.  

What is diaspora ministry?

We have only worked with refugees for a short time, so we don’t claim to be experts, but we have learned a few things along the way so far...

Befriending the community

"Our church has always sought to meet and reach out into the community, ever since it was founded in the early 1800s. We are not a comfy church. We're a small congregation, who are mission-minded, and everyone gets involved. Most of us are retired and we have seen a lot of changes in our local area over the years."

Adding value

Chris Power, from AIM’s Southern Region office, talks about the opportunities available for short term mission teams that consider how caring for the environment fits in with mission. 

Carrots in the desert

Maureen Nyambura is about to join the LEAP team, a three month short term team for people interested in going into long term mission, to be trained and equipped in farming, disciple making, and being on a cross cultural team. She shares about her experience using Farming God’s Way.

There are so many ways you can be a part of reaching Africa's unreached peoples with the good news of Jesus Christ.
