JMI exists to help make justice personal for the poor, the orphaned, and the forgotten people of the world.

1. Orphan/Child Sponsorship Programs in Moldova and the amazon region of Brazil.
2. Transitional Living Programs for orphaned teens in Moldova to prevent trafficking.
3. Pastor training and encouragement for pastors in remote villages in the Amazon.
4. Providing clean water and emergency food aid.
5. Building schools in order to provide educational opportunities in the Amazon.
6. Sponsorship program for children or adults with special needs issues.
7. Medical/Vision clinics.

We have staff on the ground in both Moldova and Brazil to carry out the programs and projects that help us achieve our strategic ministry goals.

We know we are making progress in Moldova as children graduate from high school and enter into college. Also when they are discipled, baptized and then in turn volunteer their own time to help other kids in need.

In the Amazon we are making progress when the villages we work with are understanding the gospel, have a solid pastor in place, when they have a school, clean water and relief from flooding.

We have had great success with our child sponsorship program in Moldova. We have only just launched our child sponsorship program in the Amazon. We are having great success and seeing growth in our Amazon Pastor Conferences and seeing this education opportunity give hope and encouragement to local leaders as they are equipped to better care for their churches and villages.
