Vision & Mission
Samaritan Servants International endeavors to rescue people as Jesus mandated in Luke 10. The Samaritan, in the story, immediately stopped and ministered to the man’s physical need - while others saw it, passed by, and did nothing. People need the Lord, and they need us to stop and help them. Some desperately just need food and water, some need shelter, some need medical assistance, and some need to be rescued from danger. Delivering these needs in the name of Jesus is our desire. Giving hope for life and then hope for eternal life is what we want to do.
Missions efforts often include years of deputation (fund raising) and then years of attempt to establish a church. I am thankful for the dedication of these men and families, but SSI proposes a more efficient method that keeps wives and children safely at home. Teams go to deliver relief while preaching the Gospel every step of the way. The value of dedicated evangelists and pastors who go and stay on foreign fields are by no means unappreciated, but we are here to respond to urgent needs - often in places too difficult for the family.
We support the ministries of nationals and assist them however we are led of God. Men with gifts of grace and the support of believers at home, team up to GO BELIEVING that God is able. All over the world people are crying out for help. We have experienced, time after time, that God connects us as laborers to those who are seeking not only physical help but God's redemption.
We are humbled that Christians would choose to partner with us in these efforts. Please, pray for us, and consider how you may be involved. We do not ask for continuous support, but, rather, ask that donors give to specific projects and needs as they are presented.
Our overhead cost is covered by the generosity of individuals closely related to our ministry. Your gifts go 100% to the need or project you designate it to.
“If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; …”
What We Do
A typical short-term project includes the following gifts and services:
A new water well or filtration system
Food to communities in greatest need
When available, Bibles in the local language
A pavilion style church building
Daily discipleship and leadership classes
Student outreach at local schools
Ministry to local church congregations
Our long-term efforts include continued ministry in areas where we provided assistance in the past. In some regions, we have the opportunity to return year after year providing ministry training and encouragement. We identify nationals with gifts of leadership and allow donors the opportunity to send financial gifts to help sustain and develop their ministries.
When you partner with SSI, you will always have the option to designate your gifts very specifically.
In summary, and to state again:
We extend help to the poor, the outcast, and the persecuted. We are motivated by the Holy Spirit and the commands in Gods’ Word...
“Deliver the poor and needy: ….”
“The righteous considereth the cause of the poor:…”
We follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. We observe and consider people and places where poverty is real and where there is need for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Drought, disease, war, corruption, and all forms of evil have left people destitute and desperate. We cannot pass by, we must stop and consider!
SSI volunteers step out by faith to provide immediate assistance with a purpose to always leave eternal hope.
