Love Never Fails seeks to decrease the spread of HIV/AIDS and free women from a life of prostitution. The staff cares for the daily physical needs of men and women living with AIDS, encourages HIV testing, provides AIDS awareness programs, and leads training to de-stigmatize the disease. In addition, the ministry offers both income-generating activities for prostitutes and educational support for children so that vulnerable women and children will have the job skills to be self-sufficient. Love Never Fails cares with the compassion of Christ, taking every opportunity to share the hope of the gospel to change lives.

Jars of Oil Mission Africa (JOMA) ministers to elderly widows (affectionately referred to as grannies) who lost their children to AIDS and now take care of their grandchildren. With compassion, the ministry breaks through the shame and stigma associated with AIDS to meet physical and spiritual needs. JOMA feeds families by delivering food packages and helping “grannies” start gardens. The gardens provide a source of food, income, and dignity. Many of the grannies suffer from HIV or other illnesses so JOMA arranges medical treatment for them.
