Your Impact, Local and Global
November 22, 2016
By God’s grace. It’s how Elim came to be. It’s how Elim continues to reshape the world of disabilities ministry.
By God’s grace, He used two ordinary women who were willing to fill an extraordinary need for students with disabilities to found Elim Christian Services, an organization now serving over 900 children and adults with disabilities each day. By His grace, our adults and children bless the community around them through service projects, building relationships within the community, and by leading (and serving) church and school groups in worship and service activities.
Our society often commends the rich, the strong, and the powerful. At Elim, we know that each individual we support is made in the image of his or her Creator.
Our goal is to increase opportunities for and to change attitudes toward individuals with disabilities–focusing not on disability but on the God-given abilities of each person.
We celebrate each uniquely-gifted life that our staff has the privilege to encourage and equip to use his or her gifts to glorify God!
We hope you’ll take a few minutes to review your Annual Impact Report. We can’t wait for you to see how God’s grace has changed the lives of Lily, Robert, and Wafaa, as well as their families and communities. This report is your report, and it has been designed to thank you for participating in God’s gracious work he is doing through Elim.
As we review the past year and anticipate the blessings and challenges of a new year, we ask for your prayers, for our students and adults, for their families, for the staff that make this possible, and for the Elim community as a whole. In particular, I ask you to pray that God would continue to provide the staff we need to serve those God has brought to us, that He would – by His grace – provide the financial resources needed to sustain these ministries, and that He would direct our hearts and minds as His servants at Elim, to do all things for His honor and glory.
Will you join the Elim community in celebrating what God has accomplished – and continues to accomplish – by His grace in the life of each person served at Elim?
