Q: What is International Messengers Canada?
A: It’s an evangelical mission organization that partners with 190 career missionaries in 17 countries including but not limited to the Eastern European former Communist bloc, Cyprus, Nepal, Thailand, Russia, and France. It began approximately 35 years ago in the USA as a ministry of the Evangelical Free Church, but now it’s interdenominational.

Its philosophy is that God has hard-wired His children in unique ways and we’re most effective and most fulfilled when we operate within those spiritual giftings. As a result, IM works among diverse groups: HIV/AIDS-infected children and teens, abused and sex-trafficked women, elderly widows, the Roma people group, university students, those living in Ugandan slums, and more.

Grace Fox and her husband Gene are the Canadian directors. www.im-canada.ca

Q: Where will the missions trips go, and what’s involved?
A: The location and nature of the task depends on which career missionaries need a women’s team. Each trip requires approximately two weeks. Participants will complete an IM application form and raise the necessary funds for their in-country expenses and air travel (all donations are tax-deductible). IM provides training and organizes all the details such as travel arrangements.
