There are currently 28,000 international students at Sydney University, around 18,000 of them from mainland China – most of whom have no understanding of the gospel. 

Ben serves with euFOCUS, the Evangelical Union’s (EU’s) ministry to international students. He recruits, trains and walks alongside Christian students and ministry apprentices to proclaim Christ to international students and ground new believers in the faith, so that they return home living for and proclaiming Christ. 

Siân supports him by caring for their boys, Elias, Jude and Rupert.

  • How can I pray for the Lims?

    1. Give thanks and praise God for the five students who became Christians this semester despite the COVID-19 disruptions. Pray that they would each be firmly grounded in their new faith and share it with others.

    2. Keep praying that students who’ve been investigating Jesus will continue to hunger and thirst to know Jesus more, and repent and believe, finding rest and peace in him. 

    3. After such a challenging semester and exams and assignments, students and the staff are all tired. Please pray that they would re-connect with one another around God’s word and prayer in small groups and our weekly Thursday night Come Home gathering, to support, encourage and spur one another on in love and good deeds.

    4. Please pray that many students will come to the EU’s Annual Conference (AnCon - https://www.sueu.org.au/ancon20) and be blessed by a good time together deep in God’s word, reflecting on God’s Unshakeable Kingdom. It will be held online this year due to COVID. Please pray that all the technology will work for the main sessions and faculty gatherings in the mornings.

    5. Please pray for good health, healing and rest as Sian and the boys have all been sick.  Give thanks for a week away near Seal Rocks in the upcoming holidays – please pray that it will be a refreshing rest together.

  • How can I care for the Lims?

    1. Keep in touch – let the Lims know you are praying for them. Send an email from you or your group, friend them on social media, or catch up with them at church on a Sunday.

    2. Send Christmas or birthday cards or gifts for their children (Elias: 9 Jan 2009,  Jude: 24 Aug 2010 and Rupert: 27 April 2015)

    3. Invite the family on a social outing.
  • How can I give to support the Lims?

    The Evangelical Union has always depended entirely on the donations and giving of generous Christian people. God has always provided! The EU's Graduates Fund believes that God works in the world as each person plays their part in serving and giving, under the Lord Jesus Christ and we would appreciate your prayer and financial support.
