About JMI - Biblical Justice - Human Trafficking Prevention

About JMI

The Lord God has told us what is right and what He demands:
“See that justice is done, let mercy be your first concern, and humbly obey your God.”
Micah 6:8 (CEV)

Our mission

Our mission is to make justice personal for the poor, the orphaned, and the forgotten people of the world. Justice and Mercy International (JMI) is a faith-based, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that primarily works in Moldova in Eastern Europe and in the Amazon region of Brazil. We do our work through programs that have the Good News of Jesus at their core. 

Our Vision

We envision a time when justice has truly been made personal and the Gospel has been clearly communicated to and modeled for the people of all the places where God has called JMI and His Church to work.

What we do

Our programming reflects our desire to make lasting and tangible change for the world’s most vulnerable. By addressing physical, economical, and spiritual poverty, we have seen that JMI programming is life changing. 

Our Four-Fold Strategy

INDIGENOUS LEADERS

INDIGENOUS LEADERS

We work through LOCAL national, indigenous leaders as we equip and partner with them to make justice personal for the people of their country, thereby allowing them to effectively fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission and usher in the fullness of God’s Kingdom here on earth. Because national leaders speak the language and know the culture of their country, they are better equipped to meet the needs of their people. Therefore, our national, in-country staff is empowered to lead the ministry of JMI.

LOCAL CHURCH

LOCAL CHURCH

We work through the local CHURCH to minister to the needs of their villages and cities. Our desire is to equip pastors and churches with the tools and resources they need to fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission.

EMPOWERING PEOPLE

EMPOWERING PEOPLE

We seek to EMPOWER people, rather than enable them. Therefore, we intentionally set aside our instinct to fix a problem, which if we are honest, oftentimes makes us feel better about the work we do, and we seek to empower the disenfranchised and equip those without knowledge. We do so to ensure people have the resources and tools they need to flourish long after we depart.

DEEP COMMITMENT

DEEP COMMITMENT

We make a deep COMMITMENT to each country or region where we work. Therefore, our dedication is life-long as we seek a time when a new generation of leaders are equipped, through the Gospel, to bring about spiritual, social, and economic change all for the glory of our great God.
