A  Movement in the Making … Missions4Jesus was formed in 2004. We incorporated and received our 501c3 non-profit status in 2005. Our Ministry exists to reach the ends of the earth with the Gospel message. We do this through providing Shelter, Agriculture, Vocation and Evangelism along with medical assistance to those in need.  In 2008, Missions4Jesus formed the subsidiary Operation S.A.V.E. We are now in the process of merging the two names and re-branding our Ministry, including a new website and logo design. The name Operation SAVE was officially incorporated in January 2017. Our new website is www.operation-save.org. Jesus is still at the core of everything we do and the missions4jesus.com website still exists. You can view either website  for information. We covet your prayers as our mission continues globally in Malawi, Africa and locally in North Carolina. We are excited about the future and will keep you informed on Events and upcoming Mission Trips.

Malawi is in the Top 10 List of the Poorest Countries in the World 

Holding a population of 16 million while also being one of the smallest African nation doesn’t set you up for accumulation or distribution of wealth. Arguable the most underdeveloped nation in the world, Malawi suffers greatly in essentially all categories available. Access to education, general standard of healthcare, infrastructure, and quality of living conditions are all limited or substandard. Because the nation is unable to develop in general, they’re for all intents and purposes stuck with trying to drive their economy using only the most primitive levels of agriculture. With common weather variations, as well as injuries and fatalities facilitated by poor health care, Malawi’s world lowest GDP per capita of $226.50 doesn’t seem like it will be rising too significantly any time soon.

Sometimes days may seem tough. Maybe things just didn’t go the way you want, or perhaps you’re frustrated with where your life stands currently. While many may have perfectly valid reasons for frustration, it is equally as important to take moments everyday to appreciate the reasons your life may be great. There’s privilege to be seen everywhere, even in something so simple as the internet connection required for you to have read this article.

MISSIONS4JESUS  (M4J)

MOBILE MEDICAL CLINIC, EYE GLASS CLINIC, CEF, PREACHING AND SHOE DISTRIBUTION 

Since M4J implemented Pastors Training in 2010, hundreds of Pastors have been trained to carry on the Missions4Jesus year-round ministry. We received the following report from M4J-Malawi National Director, Pastor Jacques Jackson with the latest Crusade activity:


30 M4J Malawi volunteers both from Lumbadzi and Malingunde  participated in this Crusade Event. There were many – many people gathered over a thousand. 


Mobile Medical Clinic

We just managed to hire one doctor and one nurse.  We bought additional malaria and pain medicine.  Multiple volunteers helped  the doctor and nurse. They managed to treat over 450 people. It was a wonderful clinic and the chief of the area are very appreciating. 


C.E.F Program

CEF trained volunteers did the best work they could do to teach over 600 children who gathered at this school. 

They taught lessons 1-3 and promised them to finish 4-5 next visit. 

The taught the colours of bless-less and evangel-cube. 

They distributed tracks, play fish-fish, soccer-ball and many activities. 


Crusade Preaching

Prior to the clinics and activities, Pastor Glyn Mittahwa was the one who preached at this gathering. He got his message from the book of “Proverbs 19:21” THE PURPOSE OF GOD PREVAILS!!!  For the people who accepted Jesus on the day of the crusade were ministered to by the zone pastor of that area.  Over 20 people accepted Jesus as their personal Savior. 


Shoe Distribution 

500 pair of shoes were distributed to 500 children.


To God be the Glory!

November 2015 Post Mission Trip Update

What an honor and privilege to be able to go and serve the Lord in Malawi these past weeks. Truly honored by God to be a part of such a service.

· Missions team trip followed a week long pastors conference hosted by M4J with more 130 pastors in attendance many of which joined us in the field for ministry.

· Gave thousands of Sketcher Croc shoes out to children after washing their little and sometimes big feet while telling them about Jesus. Happy to say there's only remaining approximately 6,000 Sketcher Croc shoes from when this program started this year with 26,316 pairs. That is a lot of foot washings.

· Held medical clinics with doctors and nurses, treating patients with prescription medications and additional over the counter medicines . Saw the blind, crippled, wounded, and elderly receive medical aid.

· Held eye glass clinics to deliver hundreds of reading glasses to those in need. It's bad to have a bible but can't read it because of your eye sight. Wonderful to watch the faces light up when they look through the correct pair. What a blessing.

· Watched pastors preaching in 2 languages through translators take place to literally thousands of adults day after day at the same time many hundreds of children received the gospel through Children Evangelism Fellowship working with the large evange cubes, biblical stories in the wordless books, salvation bracelets, games, and praise songs, all the while connecting them all to the local pastors and churches for discipleship after salvation. God is at such a grand work. Absolutely Amazing!!!!

· We're able to distribute thousands of Christian tracts, care packs with sugar, salt, soaps, Vaseline, soy pieces, bibles, blankets to the elderly, mosquito nets to the young new mothers to protect against malaria, bags of corn as this is a starving nation.

· Hospital visitation were able to witness and give many salvation dolls in the children's wards.

· Had the privilege of going door to door in the villages and is always rewarding because you don't know what you’re going to encounter, just witnessing for Christ.

· Had the privilege to see one of M4J feeding programs in person and watched 1,600 children get a hot bowl of porridge. All together over 6,000 children receive a hot meal 5 days a week through M4J, that's more than 30,000 meals per week. Wow!!!!  These programs run for three years then the schools take over. Give a man a fish and he eats for a day teach a man to fish and he eats for life.

· Please continue to pray for Marvin and Jimmy Funderburk as they continue to serve in Water for Life drilling new wells as well as repairing old wells. What and awesome ministry to know that these wells are saving lives daily and keeping people from getting sick. 

None of this could have been accomplished without the help and prayerful support from America and most of all the boots on the ground from all the Malawi M4J supports including pastors. 2016 holds to be a huge year as there are planned to be 5 pastors conferences through three different regions of Malawi, we have two team trips planned in Malawi tentative dates are June 10th - 24th and November 4th - 18th.

December 2014: Through God’s guiding hand, M4J stepped out on faith and purchased 26,316 pairs of Sketcher crocks, in an ongoing relationship with Samaritan Feet International.  Please pray every single shoe is placed on the intended foot the Lord has directed.  That’s a whole lot of foot washing and evangelizing.


November 2014:  Our Malawi Africa, Southern Region Leadership  and our trained African pastors held a week long Pastors Conference with 165 local Malawian pastors all funded by  Sponsors of M4J.  We will never know the full effects of such teaching and leading in the gospel, at least not on this side of eternity. They  also began the ministry of large crusades,  CEF,  prison ministry,  hospital ministry,  eye glass clinics,  minor medical aid  and distributions of bibles, tracts, blankets, mosquito nets,and care packs.


To God be all the glory through this effort!
