SENIOR LEADERSHIP

PASTOR AJAI & MAUREENA PRAKASH

Missionaries from the Middle East to the Midwest.

 

Pastor Ajai and Maureena were born and raised in North India and served God by pioneering and planting underground churches in the Middle East. When God led them to come to America as missionaries, they did not really comprehend His call. They were raised to believe that America is God’s land, and its churches are strong and people are the most spiritually alive. Only after their arrival to the USA 12 years ago, they understood what God really meant. Witnessing a number of churches on the East coast turn into social clubs or sold as museums/art centers was far from what God intended His body to be. No one really cared!

While in the Middle East, they played an imperative role in the revival of the underground church. Coming from nations where believers in persecuted nations are revived, God ignited the vision of reviving America in their hearts. How to go about it would be a monumental task but not impossible for our Creator. Therefore, their greatest hope and desire for the American church is to impassion them for Christ and set the stage for revival. In this, the western church may experience the same blessings enjoyed by the underground church.

Just witnessing the dire events during the last decade solidifies what God’s long standing intent is for America. This is being mirrored and reiterated by a number of ministries in this nation: ‘American Renewal Project,’ ‘Worship Night,’ ‘Together 2016,’ ‘Focus on the Family’ and many others. The Spirit of God is One that articulates the same one message to all in the body of Christ provided we listen to Him. Just imagine IF 7:14 (2 Chronicles 7:14) could take place, what would our communities and nation be like?

 VISION: THE ELIM ARRIVAL

 

In verse 26 of the 15th chapter of Exodus the Lord made a statute and an ordinance before the people of Israel right after crossing the Red Sea. The statute and ordinance called for the hearing of the voice of the Lord, doing what is right in His sight and keeping all of His commandments faithfully. It was only after hearing this message that the people arrived to an oasis in the wilderness called ELIM.

IF YOU, DILIGENTLY HEED THE VOICE OF THE LORD YOUR GOD, DO WHAT IS RIGHT IN HIS SIGHT, GIVE EAR TO HIS COMMANDMENTS, KEEP ALL HIS STATUTES, I WILL PUT NONE OF THE DISEASES ON YOU WHICH I HAVE BROUGHT UPON THE EGYPTIANS FOR I AM THE LORD WHO HEALS YOU. THEN THEY CAME TO ELIM, WHERE THERE WERE 12 WELLS OF WATER AND 70 PALM TREES: SO THEY CAMPED THERE BY THE WATERS. 

[EXODUS 15: 26-27] 

The people of Israel were in great distress as they were all alone in the wilderness before reaching Elim. Their problems were confined to the simple necessities of life – food and water. Here in Iowa (and the rest of the US) we have an abundance of food and water but many of us are in a spiritual wilderness. Men are being tossed and turned by the gods of sex and money. Women are being tormented by the fact that society attributes all of their value to their outward appearance. The youth are crippled by loneliness as their parents have separated and put all the pressure on them to figure life out all on their own.

TheElimArrival team believes that God is putting forth a statute and ordinance upon this land just like He did before the Israelites years ago. He is calling all men to rise and up and become the men of valor they were created to be. He is calling all women to stand up and be the courageous women that they were created to be. He is reminding all the lonely souls that He can fulfill their every need. We believe that God is calling us out of our little comfortable lives to proclaim this message to any pair of ears that will hear – and most importantly use the gifts and talents God has given us (music, teaching, preaching, writing) to communicate these truths to this generation.

Restoration and Revival will only come to our land when we decide to follow what God desires and reject the spirit and ruler of the worldAll forces put together, THE ELIM ARRIVAL  aims to reveal to the people of the world that God through His son Jesus offers the hope of redemption- a second chance, so that they too can arrive at their spiritual Elim and bring glory to the God who created them.
