LOVE BREAKS THROUGHFebruary 14, 2018 by Don Rogers
WHEN LOVE BREAKS THROUGH!
What Everlyn recently said to the chief and hundreds in the village put into motion another meeting that needs your prayers and could change the course of life for hundreds!
If you have been following the impact of your support of ELI you know how God opened a door to reach hundreds of brewers of illegal alcohol with the love of God and alternative skills for business!
Today on this Valentines Day, Dennis (ELI Kenya Manager/Trainer) shared that a couple of weeks ago Everlyn (One of the reformed brewers) was invited by two village chiefs to address 300 people in a village on the devastating impact that the brewing business had had on her life and family. She shared her personal testimony of change that took place after graduating from one week of training with ELI staff at the training center and quoted Matthew 11:28 where Jesus invites a crowd to bring their burdens to him so that they can find true rest.
At the end of the meeting, the chiefs were quite impacted by her sharing and agreed to have another meeting with only illegal brewers. That meeting took place this past Thursday (2/8) and 150 women in the brewing business showed up and listened to Everlyn share with God inspired passion! She told them how ELI provides ideas rather than money and how the new business ideas and God’s love broke through and changed the course of her life and family!
Yet another meeting is now on the calendar and your prayers are greatly needed! On March 1st a couple Empowering Lives leaders/ trainers will be visiting the village for a “Pre-Training” meeting. The women will be challenged to take the bold step to come out of the brewing business and attend a 4-day ELI training designed just for them.
PRAY FOR MARCH 1st !
Will you believe with us that more lives are about to be changed for now and eternity?
Please mark your calendars and pray for March 1st ! That the 150 women will come to the village meeting to discuss with ELI staff – That hearts will be open to change – That they will agree on a date to come for the training – That the chiefs will continue to be supportive – That the women who do come to the Training Center will be changed from the inside out. Our greatest prayer is that they will then be used by God to transform more women, just like Everlyn has courageously testified to see LOVE BREAK THROUGH!
