Why 70 senders? As we set forth the ministry of Elim Springs in Liberia, we loved the refreshing vision of the place that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob provided for the children of Israel as they traveled from Egypt to the Promised Land. Our hope and prayer is that our family and our ministry will be a place of restoration and rejuvenation following a long, bitter season of war and discord in Liberia. At Elim, Yahweh provided rest in the form of 12 springs and 70 palm trees – an oasis. In praying for you as a sender for our family, you remind us of one of the 70 palm trees that God provided at the oasis. The palm trees, date palms to be exact, encircled the springs and offered the provision of shelter, sustenance, and security for the children as they camped at Elim. As one of our 70 senders, you provide the same provision for our family as the palm trees did for the children of Israel at Elim.
