​Historians often refer to William Carey as the “father of the modern missionary movement.” When Carey left the shores of Britain for India in 1793, he said to his friend Andrew Fuller, “I’ll go down into the pit, if you hold the ropes.” Fuller served Carey’s missionary efforts until his death in 1814 by travelling throughout the British Isles, raising funds and preaching on missions. Carey and his associates in India could focus on their ministry in the field because they knew Fuller was “holding the ropes” by advocating for them back home.

As Rope Holder with ELLS International, your monthly partnership “holds the ropes” for our trainers as they travel to remote places throughout the developing world to help equip pastors, strengthen churches, and advance the gospel. Together, we are doing our part in helping to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission of teaching and discipling all the nations of the earth! (Matt. 28:16-20).

“ELLS International came into my life at the right time since all my years of ministry, I was working without training. This was due to the cost of learning in Kenya and the many requirements that one ought to have before being enrolled in any institution. Thanks to God for putting together a team who are concerned with the welfare of saints in the remote areas but who have a heart for God and His work. Thanks to the team members who are willing to make enormous trips just to reach others. Thanks to all the supporters of ELLS International. Your continued contribution is not wasted.”
