About

Operation Mercy is a dedicated outreach ministry wing under Siva Moodley Ministries.

We are dedicated to practically demonstrating the Gospel and Love of Jesus to the impoverished, destitute and to those in need.

“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you did for Me.”

Matthew‬ 25:40

A part of Christianity is taking care of the needy. The Early Church did it. The Apostles did it. Jesus said that our love for God must be closely followed by love for our neighbors. It is something God has called us and expects us to do. “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” is at the center of Christianity.

“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will reward them for what they have done”

~Proverbs‬ 19:17‬

Over the years, Operation Mercy has been involved in feeding thousands of people in squatter camps, in Christmas street parties, buying gifts for children that never had gifts before, buying them shoes and clothing to those who never had shoes before and giving bibles in large quantities. On a monthly basis, Operation Mercy gives massive amounts of food parcels to those in need. Many have even given their lives to Jesus because of this ministry. The greatest achievement of all is the transformation of people's lives when they are shown the love of God.

"Operation Mercy is about helping those in need regardless of race, creed or colour. It's about obeying the commandments of Jesus. It's a ministry of mercy, compassion and generosity. Operation Mercy brings the mercy, love of God and Presence of God in a practical way. "

All of Operation Mercy’s giving has no strings attached. There's no restriction such as they need to be a Christian or become a member of The Miracle Centre. Operation Mercy has in fact given to those who can never repay them or even attend their church. Their message is simple, "Jesus loves you and this is from Jesus." Operation Mercy boldly declares that they are a Christian church but they don't withhold God's grace to anyone.

The message is simple, "Jesus loves you and this is from Jesus."

Operation Mercy also provides resources and training so that people do not remain dependent, but rather they become independent, successful and mighty kings in the marketplace. Operation Mercy provides the infrastructure, training and platform to accomplish this so that people mature and learn how to bless others themselves. They are careful to meet the needs of people by providing them with food and other benefits but they do not provide money so that people do not become dependent on the church for finances.

"...before we can preach the Gospel to someone in need, we have to satisfy their hunger..."

At times, we are not able to physically be there to give to the destitute, impoverished and needy but through Operation Mercy, you are practically living out the Word of God. You are becoming the hands, mouth and the feet of Jesus Christ to a world in need and sometimes, before we can preach the Gospel to someone in need we have to satisfy their hunger. As James explained, love for our neighbour needs to be practical (James 2:15-16). There’s no sense in preaching the Gospel to someone and they are dying in hunger. We need meet that need and through supporting Operation Mercy, you are meeting their needs.

There is one child in particular that really blessed me. This child did not have any shoes. We gave him a pair of shoes as a gift but when he saw another child that didn’t have shoes, he gave his new shoes to him. That is what the love of God is all about.
