Rusty Thomas must be one of the most passionate defenders of the unborn in America. Rusty serves as the Assistant Director of Operation Save America and the founder of Elijah Ministries. Elijah Ministries is dedicated to imparting a Biblical worldview to the Church of Jesus Christ that will provide the theological impetus to fulfill the Great Commission. Rusty is a self-sacrificing servant and prophet of the Lord. He is sold out to the gospel of Jesus Christ, a true champion for the unborn, and a voice crying in the wilderness for those who cannot speak for themselves.
Rusty and his wife Liz have 10 wonderful children who stand undivided with them in the ministry. They are home schooled through the Thomas family's own (aptly named) "University of Righteousness." The children stand faithfully with their parents on the streets as they defend the cause of the fatherless. They serve in the home and minister along side their father and mother in the various ministry opportunities that the Lord brings their way. Simply put, The Thomas family is a Christian army girded one to another in the bonds of love and the armor of invincible principle.
Last night I spent the wee hours of the night praying and weeping with my dear friend Rusty Thomas.
In one day, the Thomas family has had their world turned upside-down with the revelation that Liz is suffering from a life threatening ailment that is robbing her body of the ability to cleanse herself. Doctors have found a mass on her pancreas that the doctors suspect is cancerous. This mass has blocked off the function of Liz's kidney, liver, and bladder by blocking the ducts to these organs. She has become jaundiced and is not even able to keep fluids down.
Rusty and Liz have prayed many times for those that were sick. The prayers of a righteous man availeth much. It is now our time to lift up Rusty and Liz before the Lord.
Please pray for Liz's healing and for God's provision to take care of their medical needs. Pray for Rusty and their ten children ranging in age from Shekinah (17 yrs.), Cassia, Destiny, Charity, Elijah, Micah, Josiah, Valiant Christian, Jeremiah, and baby Torah Grace (8 months).
Also, if you want to drop a note to Liz and Rusty, or even offer them a financial gift, please feel free to write them at:
