Elvatta Abraham: Perseverance in a Missionary Graveyard

 Known by some as the “graveyard of Missionaries”, Bihar is famously resistant to the gospel. But 30 Years after Elvatta Abraham first founded it, ECFC ministries is responsible for 4 schools, 2 orphanages, clean water projects, a bible school, and 1800 house churches across 5 states.

 

But success came slow to Abraham. It was 8 years before he saw a single convert. He suffered years of rejection from the community. Meanwhile, his family struggled on the edge of poverty and depression. His current ministry success is underpinned by decades of perseverance and resilient hope in unique promises which Abraham felt God gave him from the Bible.
