God is a God of order, plans that conform to His perfect will have occasional surprises. One of His biggest surprises/blessing to SFM was an unexpected involvement in international ministry, beginning in India in 2003 and again in East Africa in 2005. While the ministry in each place may look quite different, the discipleship message of knowing our identity and freedom in Jesus Christ and living and walking it out - the relationship we have with God through Christ on the inside, is the same.
The means by which God has used the ministry in India is primarily in prisons.In East Africa, He is spreading the message of freedom through the development of over 15 Christian day schools in communities with high numbers of orphans and vulnerable children. SFM has also offered training in spiritual warfare and freedom principles in a number of other areas around the world.
