ELM Project leaders train local pastors and church ladies who have a heart to work with young girls to educate them on the value of every life. In teams of two, ELM Project volunteers offer support and encouragement to girls who face unplanned pregnancy through Care Team Mentorship. ELM Care Teams walk with a girl during her prenatal journey and up to two years after birth. Through this ministry, young girls are empowered to make life-affirming personal decisions regarding the value of their own lives and life in the womb. Sanctity-of-life education is needed to educate and empower young girls to make informed decisions about pregnancy. The ELM Project teaches these life-affirming messages in communities, providing a natural bridge for the local church to be involved in the community at a deeper level.
The ELM Project also seeks to equip the local Thai community to make informed decisions regarding life in the womb.
Wrapped in rainforests, edged by golden sands and winding rivers, and crowned by volcanoes, the tropical beauty of Southeast Asia testifies to God’s creative hand. Rich in history, culture, and tradition, the countries of Southeast Asia step boldly towards the future with one foot planted firmly in the past. Spirituality swirls through cities and countryside like the smoke from temple incense sticks.
The 20,000 islands of Southeast Asia are home to 2,694 people groups and includes the world’s most populous Muslim country. The nations of Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea are home to 638 unreached people groups comprised of Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, and animists who have never heard that freedom is found in Christ.
Southeast Asians welcome spiritual conversations. Pray for divine appointments for Christian workers to share that Jesus is the way to peace with God and eternal life.
