Advent Reflections by SIM East Asia


Advent is the period of four Sundays and weeks before Christmas (or sometimes from the 1st December to Christmas Day!). Advent means 'Coming' in Latin. This is the coming of Jesus into the world. Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas.

There are three meanings of 'coming' that Christians describe in Advent.

The first, and most thought of, happened about 2000 years ago when Jesus came into the world as a baby to live as a man and die for us.

The second can happen now as Jesus wants to come into our lives.

And the third will happen in the future when Jesus comes back to the world as King and Judge, not a baby.


There are several ways that Advent is counted down but the most common is by a calendar.  On each day of our Advent Calendar, a member of the SIM East Asia team will share a reflection/prayer.  Join us as we count down to Christmas.

Philippines Mission Centre increases reach


We give thanks for the growing number of missionaries serving in the country and being sent out from the Philippines.

Please pray we can raise sufficient funds to acquire a property. This will be used for operations support, training, member care and counselling of missionaries, meeting ministry needs into the future.

Praying for Nepal


SIM has launched a response to the recent devastating Nepal earthquakes. SIM Nepal personnel are working with other agencies to provide a coordinated response. This includes provision of food, clean water, shelter, medical services, transport and counselling. 

SIM is very grateful for offers of individual support that have come from around the world. At this time, we have adequate personnel locally to handle immediate relief efforts.

Responding to unrest in Niger

5199 Niger Attacks 620x200

Attacks took place this past weekend in Niger on 16 and 17 Jan. Christian schools, churches and homes were burned and a SIM mission compound was part of the attack. More than 40 churches were affected.

In a country among the poorest in the world, the Nigerien Church will struggle to rebuild damaged churches, pastors’ homes, and ministry centers. SIM stands with our church partners in rebuilding what was destroyed and continuing to proclaim the love of Christ. 


These attacks have left believers in cities across Niger in a state of fear, pain and destruction. The violence has killed 10 Nigeriens, damanged millions of dollars of property and left a community stunned. 


How to Pray

  • Please pray for the people of Niger, that they wouldn't condone these acts and rather support their fellow Christian brothers and sisters in  rebuilding of their faith, personal belongings and health.
  • Pray that God would touch the hearts of those who committed these crimes and bring them closer to Him.
  • Pray that God will keep the hearts of the Christians affected by this disaster from retaliation. 

How to help

Please indicate project #97308 when communicating with us about this project.
