trees_featherLiving in and involved with the communities in which we work, we in the SMA witness on a daily basis the struggle of Africa to achieve its potential in today’s world.
Africa for the SMA is the continent where we have found:
– a welcome
– an openness to receiving God’s  Word
– an attraction that inspires our missionaries to spend and give their lives.  At present, SMA works in 16 countries in Africa. For more information about any of these countries click on the name of country below
