One by one, students from Elim Bible Institue & College began to call out names of countries that God was putting on their heart. All that took place during the final session of what was an incredible week of encountering God’s heart for people and unreached nations.

We had the privilege to not only plan, but also lead the missions conference at EBI&C last week. It was almost a year of dreaming with a small team of how we could create the right atmosphere and program for the student body, faculty and surrounding ministries.

God was so faithful to meet us at every corner. Moments in chapel services, conversations around lunch tables, late night prayer meetings; the week was full to the brim of hearts being drawn into God’s heart which longs for all nations to return to Himself.

The painting was created for this event displaying 8 different people of various nationalities as a prophetic piece, done by an EBI& C student. This was what she wrote as she described the painting, “God gave me this painting over the summer. I believe God was reminding us that He is not limited by any culture or any age range. He is the same God and He loves with the same passion all of His people from every nation, generation, and situation. I want to encourage you to seek God personally for what His heart is towards the world and ask Him to fill you with the same boundless love He has for His people.”

This past week God fulfilled the prophetic picture and personally met with us to give us a deeper love and heart for the nations.
