Operation Mobilisation

Operation Mobilisation works in more than 110 countries, motivating and equipping people to share God’s love with others. Working in every region of the world and on every ocean (via an ocean-going ship), Operation Mobilisation seeks to demonstrate and proclaim the love of God. Adapting to the local culture and situation, OM teams seek to find the best ways to share Jesus’ message.

For several years we have been supporting Mike, Nélia, Louissa and Joshua Leal both during their time in Brazil at OM’s training base in São Paulo and through their return to this country.

Below is the latest update from the Leal’s

We are so thankful to you, the congregation of St John’s Fareham, for your support over the last 11 years! It was back in 2010 that we quit our jobs, sold all our furniture, rented out our house, and with our 2 children (then aged 9 and 12) left to start a new life in Brazil with Operation Mobilisation. Our initial roles were IT Administrator and English Teacher, but God soon challenged us with opportunities to serve in other ways – such as leadership in the Latin America area and in the Missions Training School.

Seven year later we returned to the UK, initially to rented accommodation and in 2020 back to our house in Hove. Mike continued with a role he had started whilst in Brazil – as an associate leader for Latin America in the role of Chief-of-Operations. To start with, Nelia paused her OM ministry as she need a paid job to provide additional income. God was good, giving her both a teaching and an administrative role at a Christian English language school in Brighton, and more recently she has also been teaching on-line for an OM “Missions Language Academy” (MLA) based in Bolivia.

So, what are the plans for 2022 and how can you be praying for our ministry and for us as a family?

  • Wisdom for Mike and the Area Leadership Team as they work with the Field Leaders across Latin America to adjust course after all the impact of the global pandemic. Safety and protection as he starts travelling and meeting up with people again.
  • Thank God that Nelia held on to her job at Olivet Language School, even through lockdown and pray that the school will not only survive, but will thrive in 2022. Pray also for the new term at the MLA and for opportunities to continue teaching future missionaries.
  • Thank God for Louissa’s Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship, and pray for her future plans to start a History PGCE at the University of Sussex
  • Thank God for a really great start to Joshua’s 2nd year studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Surrey – pray for his studies, his sport (Uni futsal team), his church life and his new friendships.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations,
forever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians 3v20
