A Word From Elva


I am honored that you have chosen to learn more about me and my work. I enjoy painting very much. However, there is something I enjoy even more, and I wish to share it with you, the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ in my life. The Bible says

“Christ came that we can have life and have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10

I accepted Christ into my life when I was 14 years old. This new life has brought more meaning and purpose into everything that I do. Peace, joy, love and forgiveness are just a few of the side benefits of making that decision to invite Christ into my heart. More importantly, I now have the assurance of everlasting life with God in heaven after death. If you have never accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior…you need to! Here’s why:

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 8:23

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 6:23

“But God demonstrated his own love for us in this, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:8

How to Receive Christ

“If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with the heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”
Romans 10:9-10

If you desire to receive Christ, pray this prayer:

“Dear God,
I know that I am a sinner. I repent of my sin. Come into my life and change me. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died for my sin. I believe that he was raised from the dead for my justification. I confess Him now as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen!”

Congratulations and welcome to the family of God! God bless you!
