Operation Philip is based upon Philip’s example in Acts 8:5-8.
“Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. And there was great joy in that city.”
On rough roads from city to city, town to town, village to village—wherever the gospel has not been preached—Mark and a team of Pastors, leaders and skilled technicians, move in with their vehicles, set up stages, generators and sound equipment to conduct evangelistic meetings—preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ!
Tens of thousands have accepted Jesus as Saviour. Thousands have been healed. Cities and nations have been changed as a result of this powerful outreach.
In 2008, Operation Philip drove into Wau, Sudan where there were only 3 believers. During that time 47,000 people received Christ as Mark preached at the foot of a Mosque. Today, there are over 28 Christian churches functioning there.
In 2009, Operation Philip went to Awiel, Sudan to hold a Mass Crusade. During the day they evangelized the neighbouring town of Aquim helping a Pastor with a church of 80 people. In May 2010, while conducting Operation Philip in Sudan, Mark visited this Pastor in Aquim, only to find that the same church has grown to 3000 people. The Pastor attributes the growth directly to Operation Philip.
