We love the fact that part of our name ANIM (ah-neem) contains the pronunciation of a life-giving tree, the Neem tree. This was an intended connection that shows us that God, our refuge, is the One who has started this ministry and will continue to equip us to do the work.
We sense God's calling to bring Gospel transformation to Africa through the local church. God has a way of changing our hearts and then prompting us to action. When we come into alignment with his will, then and only then can we flourish in this life. God has called and inspired many thousands of people throughout Africa to His Great Harvest. There are still many places where the cultural forces make living out the Gospel extremely difficult. The life a person lives out in society can be very different from the life they live inside the church and their home. We want to not only encourage, but equip, every believer in Africa to live out their faith obediently in every area of their life. For we know that when believers are in alignment with God's will, they will have shalom in their lives and they will see shalom prosper in their communities. "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." (John 1:5)
