One of the interns from Olivet Teen Mission Headquarters, Livy Disla, visited Elim Center May 17th and 18th. During her visit, she was greatly strengthened by the Lord as God encouraged her to set up faith and believe that she is dearly loved.
The Lord is constantly speaking to His children so that they can move on from the past and look towards the future with great hope in the Lord.

Below is her testimony: 
"Various times God spoke to me and told to believe and set up great faith. To believe that I am dearly loved and that others love her me. He told me to open up my heart and to confess my sins to the Lord and to my brothers and sister without fear. I should trust them and know that He will never condemn me, neither will they. In addition to this God told me to always look on to him, to set my eyes on him, to look above, look at the sky because power comes from above and not below.
Bible clearly says that the righteous shall live by faith. As I left from Elim Center, I was faced with this kind of situations where I had to believe that others love me and that they are not going to hurt me. One thing that really spoke to me was when God said that 'you want to give, but in order to give you must have, and in order to have you must receive, so you need to open your heart and receive all the love that your brothers and sisters want to give you.' I think that this really changed a lot my viewpoint and perception of my brother and sisters and how I should just really open my heart to them. Please pray for me that I could really be changed by the power of the Lord and to continue to set up great faith."
Let us continue to pray for God to open each of our hearts so that we may be opened to one another and receive the love of God that is displayed in each of His sons and daughters.
