Who We Are07.11.10

usBut seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matt 6:33

We are Reverends Jerry & Deborah Smith. We are the Founders and Directors of Days of Elisha Ministries based in Texas, USA and also of Days of Elisha Ministries, Kenya. It is very important to us that long after we are gone, whether it be to another mission or from this earth, that this minsitry will continue to change the lives of the people of Kenya.

From the beginning of our lives together we have served in ministry; in one way or another. If you can name it – we have done it. God made sure we had adequate training before moving us to the foreign mission field. And we can assure you, if anyone tells you that cooking, cleaning, and mowing are not ministry – they are WRONG!!! Everything we find ourselves doing is done unto the Lord.

The Lord called Deborah to Africa as a child. Jerry, on the other hand, said, “Don’t ever say that word (Africa) to me again”!! Needless to say, the Lord did a work in his heart and here we are today. We decided many years ago that serving the Lord was all we could do. We began to pray for God to “give us souls or give us death”. We are alive and well today. There is no greater purpose for us than to see lost souls saved and to see Christians begin to live at their appropriate level of victory. Too many people are living defeated lives simply because they do not know Christ and/or they do not know who they are in Christ.

We are completely dedicated to serving our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We believe in living Holy lives, set apart from the cares and concerns of this world. We don’t take our calling and commitment lightly and we are very serious about the things of God.

We have a two daughters. Haeley, who is married to a phenomenal young man, Joel.  They live in Texas and are an important part of our ministry. Our youngest daughter, Arden is now 17 and an amazing young woman of God.

In 2012 we moved back to Silsbee, TX so that our daughter could finish High School and because the Lord directed us to do so.  At this time we are ministering in our local church in Texas and directing the ministry team in Kenya.  We will travel to Kenya in June 2014.
