Ruth

Ruth* works in the Indian Ocean Islands seeking to share the gospel with people who have never had it explained to them.

She began serving with AIM in 2019 in a creative access location, and during that time she learned the local language, starting to understand the culture around her, and built relationships within her community to give her natural openings to share the gospel.

In February 2021 Ruth began serving on an Indian Ocean island. She is seeking to be bold in her declaration of truth, but also wise in knowing when and how to provoke conversations that will have the greatest gospel impact.

The Indian Ocean Islands are going through a second wave of Covid-19, with cases rising and some islands preventing people travelling to or from them. Please pray for healing for those infected, that transmission of the virus will be stopped, and that cases will fall. Please also pray that missionaries who are hoping to begin ministry on the Islands in the next few weeks will be able to travel there.

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.

Creative Access

Creative Access refers to nations, areas or ministries where there is great hostility towards Christianity and where traditional ‘missionary work’ is not possible. Workers, therefore, need to be ‘creative’ in how they proclaim the good news of Jesus. LEARN MORE
