Message from the Board of Directors

Dear Fellow Kingdom Workers,

On behalf of Elijah Ministries we are excited to report that new opportunities opened up in 2016 that greatly expanded the international scope of The Spirit of Elijah Ministries. Norm has traveled to South Africa, South Korea, Australia, Brazil, and Columbia, South America. As you can well imagine because of the encouragement you have received from Norm’s speaking, personal ministry, and resources, his training and teaching are impacting lives in many amazing ways. As the Board of Directors we are privileged to hear many of the wonderful stories of how God is working.

That said, because of the added cost of travel, as well as the limited ability of these brothers in Christ to compensate the ministry, we must rely on the generous gifts of outside support for this ministry to continue in the future. We have already committed to one such trip in January, trusting God for the resources to be provided. We are asking for your support to keep this great Kingdom work going forward. The Board of Directors are deeply committed to the work of the Holy Spirit being made available wherever He calls Norm to go, and we look forward to seeing what He might do through you and us as we partner together in accomplishing all that is on God's heart for 2017 through this ministry. Please consider giving to the Lord this year and next through The Spirit of Elijah Ministries.

You may easily make a gift on the website at www.spiritofelijah.com/donate, send a gift via Square Cash to $elijahministries, or send a check to the ministry at P.O. Box 377, Bulverde, TX, 78163.

Working together in His vineyard.

Michael Clark, President

Thank You from Norm & Alma Wakefield

Alma and I are very grateful for your expression of God's love and faithfulness to Elijah Ministries as you have given, served, and prayed for us and the ministry. We consider your giving as an act of the Lord entrusting us with a serious responsibility to build up His body through teaching His Word and loving well those to whom He sends us.

Your partnership with us makes it possible for us to give in His name to groups, regardless of their financial condition. What a blessing!

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I thank you for your love and support. May the Lord continue to use us in His work in 2017 all over the world as He wills.

 


 

Frequently Asked Questions about Donations

Thank you for supporting The Spirit of Elijah Ministries. Your giving enables me to serve and share what God has given to me. Without God's provision through you, I could not continue to minister through Elijah Ministries. On behalf of the Board of Directors, the thousands whose lives have been more deeply anchored in Jesus Christ, and my family, I express our gratitude and joy that you would serve with us through Elijah Ministries.

Q: What does my donation go to?
Unless otherwise directed, your donation goes into the general budget which provides for salaries, ministry operating expenses, the production of resources, and provision of ministry and resources to individuals and groups who cannot afford the resources.

Q: Why do you need support when you sell materials?
The highest motivation for inviting friends to support The Spirit of Elijah Ministries, International is to give them an opportunity to share in the advancement of the gospel and give for Jesus' sake, so others may receive the blessing they have received through the ministry. It is an honor and privilege for us to labor together for the sake of the gospel. Also, Elijah Ministries is a non-profit ministry, which means the majority of its financial support is from the public. Contributions help us provide resources in Spanish to ministries and individuals in Mexico and the US who cannot afford to purchase them, as well as support the production of new materials and resources. We often have the blessing of giving away resources to single moms and others who are suffering financial hardship. This is why we offer many of our online resources for free and sell our other resources for as little as possible. Even though our prices are comparatively low, we realize that some may not be able to afford desired resources. Therefore, we have a whatever-you-can-afford policy. Your support allows us to do this and bless countless others. Your support also allows Norm to do what he does. Travelling and speaking around 30 times a year, Norm is only able to do this because of many people's generosity.
