AIM Celebrates 90,000 Missionaries Sent to the Field
I started working with AIM almost five years ago. I never thought I'd have the opportunity to be a part of something so radical, so world-changing. It's an honor.
AIM just celebrated sending its 90,000 short-term missionary into the field, which is amazing in and of itself. But really, it's only the beginning. We're excited about the next 90,000 and more to come.
Here's an excerpt from a newsletter we just sent out:
Whether you're on the front lines or holding down the fort, everything you do matters.
All you've done has led us to this point; thank you for helping advance God's kingdom.
Know that who AIM is and what we do extends the borders of his kingdom everywhere.
It's been a privilege changing the world with you.
90,000 is a big number.
If my math serves me correctly, that means that if we sent out one missionary per hour, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, it would take over 10 years to send out that many people every.
That's a lot.
And if everyone who has ever gone out into the mission field with us has reached at least one other person (which is a gross under-estimate), that means that not only were 90,000 participants' lives changed, but so were the lives of 90,000 other people.
That's 90,000 souls in heaven.
90,000 stories of redemption to tell.
90,000 lives that have been touched by Christ.

Such a feat would not be possibly without your faithfulness.
