The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion - to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.
"I greatly appreciate Elevate 61 and their support in food, clothing, and my children's education in India. I will never forget you helping me."
"Elevate 61 is not just an organization...it's family, it's opportunity, and it's love. It was there where I got hope when I had lost it."
"I'm very grateful what you have done to me. Thank you so much! You did a lot for me from the beginning. I never forget that. I hope that I get a chance to help others and give back all these good and kind things that I have got."
"I would like to acknowledge that the Lord has been comforting my mind and my heart during these difficult times. I am very happy to say that I am a follower of Jesus Christ and I'm not afraid."
"I am thankful to the Lord above that Elevate 61 came about in my life. If it was not for Elevate 61, I would have been on the streets as a homeless person…Elevate 61 saved my life. Anytime I have ever needed anything I call upon Aaron and Elevate 61 and they are there for me at a blink-of-an-eye. I hope that Elevate 61 continues doing what it does best to help men who have been sex & labor trafficked to get their lives in order and to help men become regular people back in society. God bless Elevate 61."
"Thank you for helping me with food and clothing and even school supplies. You have made a real difference in my life."
