Adventures in Missions (AIM)

BEAUTIFUL FOOTNOTES

This year, our congregation is supporting two young people in the Adventures in Missions program of Sunset International Bible Institute. We have long made an effort to help support children and grandchildren of members in evangelical efforts. Both of these are grandchildren of members, Danny and Nancy Hankins. Devin Hankins is just beginning his Mission field experience in Joao Pessoa, Brazil while his younger sister Kaylee Hankins is beginning her Bible & Mission Training and Team Building at Sunset in Lubbock. You may wonder what is AIM? What follows is a brief introduction to it. Please keep Devin, Kaylee and the AIM program in your prayers. For the elders, Ken D.

Adventures in Missions is a chance to make a difference in the world. As part of the Sunset International Bible Institute in Lubbock, TX, AIM is an apprentice missions program for college-age young people. Adventures in Missions is a focused effort by and for Christian young men and women to work together to strengthen the church and bring the lost to Christ.

“AIM time” is divided into three levels of learning: AIM begins with the Bible, the one book that explains to us how to be different. They not only study God’s word but also learn how to teach its good news to others. In the end, AIM students are apprentice missionaries learning, growing and serving on mission fields around the world.

AIM is a minimum two year commitment to study and grow and then to go teach and serve. Those who have taken the challenge of being AIM students have seen God transform their lives for him. Often times AIM students return from the mission field with a renewed sense of purpose and understanding of how they fit within the story of God’s salvation for humanity. Thus, an AIM experience can be “life changing.”
