Everyone at Elim Church Bewbush supports the following missionaries through giving, prayer and fasting:
1. The Mango Tree Village, Haiti
Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in January 2010, Rev. Christy Smith and his team responded to the great need in Haiti and arrived in Port-au-Prince 14 days after the quake struck. Within hours of arriving they began food distribution and medical assistance to city’s orphans. Today the Mango Tree Orphanage continues this work. Our monthly financial donations provide shelter, food & water, medical attention, clothes and an education for the orphans of Haiti.
2. The Lighthouse Project, Crawley
The Lighthouse Project is a group of local Christians who live to serve the children in our town. Primarily They do this by visiting various schools in crawley. There The teams present assemblies, run school clubs and teach RE lessons in schools. The project aims to continually provide an engaging and sensitive presentation of the Christian message. Our financial assistance helps pay for salaries and materials.
3. Oasis Christian Church, Macedonia
In Macedonia Elim is focusing on church planting. The first church was established in Kratovo and the second in Stip, led by Pastors Angel Pavlov and Zoki Ilievski until 2013 when Zoki and his family moved out of Stip to plant a church in Skopje. Stip is a strategic city in the north east of Macedonia with seven or eight towns within a 100 kms radius having no Christian witness whatsoever. Angel is now raising a strong church in Stip which will then reach out to surrounding towns. Elim Missionaries Tony and Norma Coles are assisting the church.
