Elim Center Intl Celebrates 9th Anniversary with 70 Members in Kirkwood
By the great grace of God, Elim Center Intl celebrated its 9th anniversary on December 3, 2017 in Kirkwood headquarter with 70 members including 40 Elim staffs around the world, giving thanks to God's blessings towards Elim during the past nine years and looking to the brighter future together.
Following the intercessory prayer and opening song, a video that includes Elim's 2017 ministry report and touching testimonies from members was presented during the Anniversary Service to show the amazing works of God and Elim's developments in the year 2017
Afterwards, the executive director of Elim Center Intl, pastor Faith delivered the sermon based on James 5:17-18 and 1Kings 18:41-46 to encourage all Elim staffs and visiting members to learn the faith and attitude of prayer in prophet Elijah, and to have the dream to be another Elijah in this generation who can terminate the spiritual famine and bring down the heavy rain of heaven. "Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops." (James 5:17-18)
The representatives of Elim Japan and Elim Korea also shared their testimonies after the sermon to testify God's love and grace both in their spiritual journey and ministry works. All the attendees gave glory and honor back to God for all His mercy and mighty works.
Cake-cutting and group photos were conducted right after the Anniversary Service and everyone enjoyed the heavenly joy at this historical moment. Elim Center Intl is full of gratitude to God and to all members' support and love. They will keep praying and serve harder in the coming year 2018.
