The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The mission of The Elijah Challenge is to train committed believers and missionaries to teach the Gospel with power throughout the developing world.
The Elijah Challenge Ministry is based in Houston, Texas where it’s founders, William & Lucille Lau reside. Pastors William and Lucille travel around the world training disciples and bringing lost souls to Christ. Most of the ministry work is concentrated in India and Brazil, where trained disciples hold events in which they feed the poor and preach the Gospel. In addition, TEC also has an orphanage in India that has so far rescued 30 children from the slums. We are currently working on expanding the facility to be able to host more children. We hold one major fundraising event in the fall and several training events throughout the year. We work solely with volunteers, so all the contributions go directly to the ministry and not overhead.
