What an incredible time in history to be alive! On the one hand we see things on the news that we could never have imagined and yet on the other hand we know that God is on the move! We know that He is in charge and that His light is breaking through the darkness.
The challenge for us is whether we sink under the darkness or whether we look up, cry out to the Lord and commit our lives to follow Him, regardless of what may be shaking around us. As the Lord’s return gets nearer and nearer, can we hear God’s voice calling us out of our sleep and half-heartedness? Will we respond and ask for His Spirit to enable us to stand firm and to passionately love and serve Him? These are the weighty questions that our Ellel teams in Ukraine and Russia are responding to in desperate circumstances (see our Ukraine reports); but the challenge is no less for the rest of us as our faith is challenged to its core.
Your response to our Ukraine and The Nations Appeal has been overwhelming – our deepest thanks for all your extraordinary support. Our hearts continue to be broken over the horrific trauma, abuse, and violence that is happening within Ukraine.
At the beginning of this year, we had a strong sense that God had been preparing us for something intense and significant during the quiet months of the 2-year Covid lock-down season. We felt that this year would be a shift in season. Who could have known that it would be such a devastating event as the war in Ukraine that would, in essence, usher Úr Rétje* into a chapter of its calling that we always knew about but have never witnessed before.
It’s totally thrilling to see Ellel’s healing and discipleship ministry grow so far and wide across the globe. It hasn’t happened immediately but has grown out of a steady demonstration that God’s core truths can transform lives when put into practice.
Testimony after testimony proves that God’s healing of our brokenness solidifies the foundations to not only feel more whole as a person, but to experience the Holy Spirit’s supernatural releasing of our gifts and contribute more significantly to God’s Kingdom work – whether it’s in church leadership, evangelism, prophecy, prayer ministry, worship, or any other call on a person’s life. Even in everyday work life, the results of personal inner healing totally transform relationships with colleagues, friends and family members.
Enjoy this quick tour of Ellel Ministries around the world. We really do give glory to God, for his message of love, compassion, healing and salvation for anyone, anywhere. May it inspire you to perhaps be a part of it. The harvest is truly great.
One of the most significant moments of our recent International Leaders Conference at Pierrepont was the handing over of the role of International Director from Peter Horrobin to Andy Taylor.
Before the war started God prompted us to stockpile food, water, candles and matches. On February 24 the war started and we needed to find a bomb shelter. We found a basement in a school building which was used to store coal. It was damp, cold and dark but we quickly made it livable.

Many thanks to all who have been praying for the ministry since March, when we announced that the Lord had led us to close the Pierrepont centre. Having agreed a sale at the end of August, we are pleased to announce that on Wednesday 22nd November 2023 the sale was completed and ownership passed to RCCG – The Redeemed Christian Church of God. We give God all the Glory for the way He has led the transaction and that RCCG will continue to use this centre for His purposes. We are so pleased that the team at Pierrepont could finish well with a final NETS programme which ended in the middle of September. We give thanks to God for all He has done at Pierrepont since the work of Ellel Ministries started there in 1995. We give Him all the glory for every life saved, healed, delivered and discipled. We also want to express our deep gratitude to all thos…

As part of our vision for reaching out beyond our centres, back in October the whole Ellel Grange team packed into two minibuses and headed off to The Message Trust in Manchester to run our new HOPE conference.

At times like this we can have such a desire to pray but wonder “how should I pray?”. So, we asked some of our friends in Israel to give us first-hand prayer points which we will be using as a team and wanted to share with you too.

Since our announcement in March that we believe the Lord is asking us to close the Pierrepont centre, we have shown more than a dozen organisations around the property. We are writing to let you know that we have now agreed a sale with a Christian organisation.

New Book Release
We are living in a time when God is restoring His Church, so that “He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.” Ephesians 5:27.
Patrick Chambron, Director of Ellel Ministries in France and Regional Director for Western Europe, shares his personal testimony of how God guided him and his wife, Valerie, to bring the Christian healing ministry into France, through the complementary visions of two men, Pierre Truschel in France and Peter Horrobin in England. Patrick describes how God chose a church in St-Laurent-du-Pont, The Christian Fellowship, to come into partnership with Ellel Ministries, in order to carry the vision of Luke 9:11 – to welcome, teach and heal – for God’s people in France.
This book shows how God used everyday circumstances in Patrick’s life so that he was well equipped for this special work that the Lord had purposed for him. Patrick also shares the many occasions when the Lord miraculously opened exactly the right doors for him and provided the necessary finances just when they were needed.
