— Because no other phone service company will invest more in you to meet your personal needs.
The Story of How We Started

We are a Christ-centered business with the goal of meeting people's needs. Let us introduce ourselves: Mark & Tsai Saethre, husband and wife team with Mark's parents Mindy and Tom Saethre. In 2010, I launched Wireless4Mission, now re-branded as Saethre Cell Service, with the same simple goal: reaching people at the cellular level- to give others the tools and information they need to make their own choices.
After having more negative experiences with the large cell-phone companies than I care to number, I sought out companies that could save me money on my cell phone plan. Once I realized the benefits of pre-paid services, I couldn't keep it to myself. I had to share! One day, a friend suggested I provide this service as a business, and that's where where our story begins. I put my day job as a registered nurse on hold, and started this journey to help people in a very different way.
Our humble beginnings of going door-to-door educating people on how they could save on their cell-phone bills eventually led to opening a small store front in Loma Linda, California. Serving the needs of San Bernardino County, I found that this work led to meeting even more than just phone service needs, but opened opportunities to minister to others physically and spiritually such as offering food for the homeless, taking drug-addicted clients to rehab, and sharing the love of Jesus with the unloved.
In 2020, we decided to move our business across the country to the quiet town of Yellville, AR. With great excitement, we depend fully on the faithfulness of God to still allow us to serve in the same capacity. With an online presence, we are able to reach every state in the US as well as countries around the world; however, we feel that the best way to help others is to invest in the place you live and to literally lend a hand. With that in mind, and with God's guidance, we have opened a store-front in Yellville, AR to serve the city and surrounding counties in a personal way.
If you're in the area, come on down and visit us! And if you don't have the privilege of being in the beautiful Ozarks, email us or contact us by phone! We are always available for you!
LET US SHARE OUR VISION WITH YOU — THE VISION THAT GAVE LIFE TO SAETHRE CELL SERVICE CONTINUES TO BE OUR BENCHMARK...
We are a service provider of cell phone plans. But that is just the beginning of our vision. We are co-laborers with God and caretakers of His resources. We will never be content merely to provide services. We aim to elevate the experience of life by offering the best that God has to offer in every way.
At its core, Saethre Cell Service is for those who embrace the freedom to choose. For those who appreciate being informed of how to best manage their resources. For those who feel compelled to put their best in what matters most. And for those for which everything has a purpose, where even every penny can have a mission. And so, Saethre Cell Service exists to serve --with skill, with compassion, and with love.
For us to achieve this vision, we are committed to being faithful stewards of the means given us by God. Of the profits made, a tithe is returned to God, and offerings are given to minister to the needs of others. In addition, we are dedicated to caring for the gift of health to sustain the work He has given us to perform.
Above all, Saethre Cell Service is dedicated to honoring God in all that we do.
We thank you, our supporters, for inspiring us to pursue this vision. With gratitude, Mark Saethre, Founder
