Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

According to the Bible, mankind is lost due to sin. Therefore, our missionaries work to share the good news that Jesus Christ has paid the price of that sin and they can live free lives. This is done by establishing relationships and trust with those who we have been sent to minister to.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Missionary Training

Every year, WIM holds at least one training session designed to prepare missionaries to serve cross-culturally.

After attending, Pam said, "I just appreciate the way WIM welcomed us into the family, loved on us, educated us and prepared us for the life to which God has called us."

Deana said, "The love that was shown to us is indescribable, and you have touched our lives in ways that have changed us forever."

Russ said, "Everyone had such useful info, presented in such a supportive, humble and loving way. What a wonderful group of people!"

Population(s) Served
Christians

WIM leaders do their best to visit missionaries on the field at least once every 18-24 months.

After one of these visits, Ivonne said, "WIM sends people to visit us and we are able to have lots of discussions around our table about life on the field. They listen, encourage and pray for us. All who have visited us have served on the mission field, so when they tell us they understand, they really do. This is a hard season we are in and we definitely needed the extra encouragement. I’m so thankful for our WIM family! We joined them in 2011 and it is one of the best decisions we’ve ever made."

Population(s) Served
Christians

The directors, office staff, and intercessors serve the needs of the missionary. People are often surprised by the amount of administration required to function effectively as a missionary. From newsletters to technology to donor relations, WIM eases administrative headaches. We also provide excellent financial accounting and reporting to the donors. We serve the missionaries so the missionaries can serve the nations.
