Agape International Missions (AIM) was founded on the ground in Cambodia in 1988 as a humanitarian aid and church planting organization. Since 2005, their ministries have focused on ending the evil of child sexual slavery.
AIM takes a holistic approach to fighting trafficking, restoring victims and transforming communities, in order to defeat trafficking. Our projects Prevent, Rescue, Restore and Reintegrate. AIM is guided by a distinct philosophy that God anointed the Church through the power of Jesus Christ to overcome evil.
•For God to embolden His people to take up cause against sex-trafficking and sexual slavery

Somali in Northeast Africa, Ethiopia and Middle East
Over sixteen million Somali are scattered across eight countries in Northeast Africa, and in the Middle East. Also over five million live in Ethiopia. Nearly all Somali are Shafiite Muslims; however, numerous beliefs and traditions have been incorporated in their religious practices. Access to education is very limited among Somali children, and poor economic, geographical and social conditions such as drought, famine and war, have caused serious problems, with malnutrition alone accounting for thousands of deaths since the 1970s.
• For God to raise up Christian teachers who will work among the Somali and share Christ’s love with them.
• For strong local churches to be built.
• For the Somali would be receptive to the Gospel.
The next SALT prayer meeting will be Saturday, February 24 at Robin and Angela’s home. All leaders, servants, and others who would like to pray for our church during this transition period are invited to attend.
