Amelia* leads a team serving among a Muslim people group on a small tropical island in the Indian Ocean. She teaches English, is a student of the local language and culture, and seeks to share the love and hope of Jesus through every area of her life. Amelia and the team long for the day when every Islander has the chance to hear and respond to him.

Latest Prayer News

Please pray for the members of the future healthcare team on the Indian Ocean Islands as they prepare to begin internships with local hospitals ahead of the formal launch of the team in the autumn. Pray that they will learn how they can best serve in the Islands’ healthcare system, and for more workers to join the team. 

Praise God for the opportunities that workers on the Indian Ocean Islands have had to speak to friends and neighbours about Jesus during Ramadan. Please pray that they will be led by the Holy Spirit as they seek to keep those conversations going. 

AIM team members serving among the Indian Ocean Islands have also contracted Covid-19 and although recovering, a number are still feeling the after effects many weeks later. Pray for full restoration to health and for renewed energy.

Recently Covid-19 has swept through the Islands with devastating effects. The healthcare systems are not able to cope with severe cases and many have died. Pray for God’s mercy on the Islands, for Islanders to cry out to him and be saved.

Several different groups of workers serve on the ground in the Indian Ocean Islands, and others are seeking to be involved from a distance. Please pray for these groups as they seek to work together to bless those living on the Islands and share the gospel with them.

Indian Ocean Islands

These beautiful tropical islands are 99.9% Muslim and for security reasons we refer to this area as the ‘Indian Ocean Islands’ rather than naming individual islands. Islam is deeply rooted on these islands and to be an islander is to be a Muslim. There are a small number of believers on each island but many follow Jesus secretly for fear of rejection and persecution.

Outreach & Evangelism

We long to let all Africa's people know that they can have life, in all its fullness, for comfort rather than being in fear of breaking taboos or working to earn favour in the eyes of their gods. LEARN MORE
