(J & M Middle East)
Operation Mobilization traces its roots to the prayers of an American housewife. In the 1950s, Dorothea Clapp began to pray faithfully for the students in her local High School. She asked God to touch the world through the lives of those young people. And God answered her prayers! Mrs. Clapp gave a copy of the Gospel of John to one of those students, who later gave his life to the Lord at a Billy Graham meeting. That young man was George Verwer, the founder of Operation Mobilization. Today, 5,000+ workers, representing more than 100 nationalities, serve in the OM family of ministries, bringing God’s unchanging truth to literally millions every year. To learn more click here.
