What Does "Doing Good" Really Mean? Jesus Had A Different Perspective.
"And this Gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come." Matthew 24:14
The mission of ELWA Ministries Association USA (EMAUSA) is to "Never get tired of doing good..." Galatians 6:9. But what does "doing good" really mean? Thanks to our faithful supporters, we do good by providing school scholarships for disadvantaged kids, food for the poor, care for orphans, support for free care at ELWA hospital and many other good things that benefit the Liberian people. But is this what Jesus says doing good is?
Jesus had a different perspective, a deeper understanding of "Doing Good". Jesus said, "Go and make disciples...". Matthew 28:19A Disciple is simply someone who believes in Jesus and seeks to follow him in his or her daily life. Jesus is the object and focus in discipleship. Being a disciple also means we want to put God’s word into action by seeking to live the way Jesus wants us to live; and this is a life of gratitude and love for the people He loves. If we really want to do good, we will share the good news of God's love and demonstrate this love as disciples by what we do.
This is the broader and deeper mission of ELWA Ministries Association USA; physical care and spiritual care.
Disciple-Making Ministry Opportunities
The mission for ELWA in Liberia for more than 65 years has been centered around the belief that no one should live and die without hearing God's good news. To this end, we invite you to join us in three ministries to share the Gospel and disciple believers in Liberia.
ELWA Ministries Association USA has identified three projects to advance disciple-making in Liberia:
1) The construction of the International Church of Liberia (ICM Church).
2) Sponsorship's of broadcasts on ELWA radio.
3) Support of pastors at the new Evangelical Seminary of West Africa (ESWA).
For more details, click on the appropriate link in the right hand sidebar. Please help us share the good news through your financial support for these ministries.
We know that we are regularly asking for your prayers for Liberia and for your financial support.
We also recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging to say the least for so many of us here in the United States. Jobs have been lost, kids and parents are struggling with online classes and many of us have lost love ones. So we understand if you are unable to donate at this time.
EMAUSA only shares the needs and passions that we hear about from the dedicated disciples on the ground in Liberia. We pray for their needs and humbly bring them to you. We never know what projects or ministries God will lay on your hearts to support or not to support. But we trust that God is in control and provides at just the right time, for just the right ministries.
So we watch with you, pray with you, marvel at the goodness of God and wait to see what He does for the people of Liberia.
We are good with that!
