Highlights of 2017

What a fruitful year!

We love launching into a new year of ministry by celebrating God’s faithfulness across the mission family for the previous year.

For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Psalm 108:4

Here is a snapshot of answered prayer in 2017 that we are grateful for:

β€œMy heart overflows with love for our Lord and Saviour Jesus.” Majd* from Syria

Media team

– Received 3.7 million visitors to the Arabic internet ministry website.
– Enabled 57,000 Bibles to be downloaded free online.
– Excitingly saw 449 people turn to Christ last year through the media ministry – a record high!

Pray with us that even more Arabic-speaking people will reach out to our media team for spiritual support.

Yemen Appeal

– Raised prayer for the crisis in Yemen in a live interview with Christian radio station, UCB.

– Helped thousands of people through resourcing practical projects like water access, sanitation and shelter while providing spiritual support for Yemeni believers and seekers.

Raising prayer and awareness

– Distributed more than 1,250 booklets of the excellent prayer guide 30 DAYS OF PRAYER to engage Christians to pray for Muslims throughout Ramadan. READ MORE ABOUT 30 DAYS OF PRAYER (external site)


Mentoring a new generation

– Partnered with local churches to commission two new families and two single people into long-term ministry among Arab people

– Sent a short-term team to take part in a prayer and outreach trip to North Africa in Easter. We also facilitated our first short-term summer trip to support Syrian refugees in the UK and Ireland.

Looking forward

At AWM-Pioneers we are passionate about meeting physical and spiritual needs across North Africa, the Middle East and among Arab peoples around the world.

Despite the turmoil, God is at work in the region drawing people to Himself and invites the Church to join in and be part of it.

Thank you for your support so far, and we look forward to what God will do through our partnership in 2018!
