Give to Our Summer Goal

We need your help as we prepare for the impact inflation will have on our work in the Amazon and Moldova. We have a goal to raise $75,000 this summer and invite you to be a part of what God is doing on the ground in Moldova and the Amazon. 

Join us as we continue to protect and provide a future for vulnerable children and teens in Moldova who are susceptible to the risks of human trafficking while caring for the thousands of Ukrainian refugees who are fleeing their war-torn country. Stand with us as we support the communities who are scattered along the banks of the Amazon river, who feel forgotten and in need of basic necessities, along with the Jungle Pastors who are faithfully reaching their communities and beyond with the love of Jesus.

Together, we have been called for such a time as this. Will you join us?

On the Ground Update

In Moldova

The war in Ukraine has sent ripples of impact around the world. In Moldova, the impact of a neighboring war has made life difficult and scary. But, what we have seen in Moldova is people continually opening up their homes to welcome refugees, even when they themselves are struggling to make ends meet. 

One of the biggest encouragements during this time is seeing how hard our Moldovan team is working to provide for the influx of refugees. We have our Transitional Living Students coming alongside our full-time staff to care for refugees by delivering food bags and packing hygiene kits. 

Over 48,000 Ukrainian children are refugees in Moldova. Most of these children have lost homes, possessions, and in some cases, family members, due to this war. We have been able to host child-friendly spaces, similar to a VBS, for children to play and have fun, do crafts, learn about Jesus, receive gifts, and enjoy food and snacks. As we continue to develop more curriculum for refugee children, our TL teens are helping implement these day camps in addition to supporting our Vulnerable Child Sponsorship Programs. 

As we watch our TL kids grow into these wonderful leaders, we are seeing the effects of programs like our Vulnerable Child Sponsorship and Transitional Living Program. Not only is JMI reaching individuals through these programs, but we are seeing a community and kingdom impact that will continue into eternity.

These programs are life-changing, and as inflation continues to rise in Moldova and around the world, the gap between what sponsorship covers and the actual cost of running the programs is growing. Our goal throughout the crisis in Moldova has been to continue our established programming while also caring for Ukrainian Refugees. We are committed to Moldova and we trust that God will continue to provide for the growing need there.

In the Amazon

In 2022, we returned to the Amazon for our first Jungle Pastors’ Conference since 2020. What a precious reunion it was! After two years of not having our annual conferences, seeing our pastors in the Amazon and getting to spend face-to-face time with them was a tremendous blessing. God is using these faithful men and women to reach the ends of the Earth.

This year, we also were able to have an American team from Rolling Hills Community Church head down to Brazil and serve along the Amazon River for a week. This team was not only the first team back to the Amazon since COVID, but they were the biggest team we had ever taken to the Amazon! We are so grateful mission trips are back and that we can host groups on our new boat, the Splendor. 

Our ministry in the Amazon is growing, and we can’t believe how far God is taking its impact. In October of last year, JMI launched our Jungle Church on Mission Program which sends local indigenous jungle churches further down the river to minister to the unreached. Since October, we have sent 4 indigenous churches out into the jungle with the hope of the Gospel. Through these indigenous mission trips, Jungle Pastors are able to take the Gospel further into the Amazon, to places where we simply cannot go.

Recently, our team in the Amazon sat down and began laying the foundation for curriculum and training that will address issues of child abuse in the Amazon. As we continue working along the Amazon river, we have seen an incredible need for more resources around protecting children from all kinds of abuse. We are dedicated to protecting and serving children, wherever the river runs!

As our programming continues to grow, we are so thankful for the support that allows it to grow. Because of donors like you who have been faithful to give, we are able to be faithful and answer the call to the Amazon. We are, as always, excited to see how the Lord moves in the Amazon.
