1/24/2017 In my scripture reading this morning I came across Acts 11:23 "Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord." (KJV) It is my hope that more believers will cleave unto the Lord and be an example to the next generation. I see the children, so spoiled, so indulged and yet so miserable. My prayer is that the children will come to see that true joy only comes from a relationship with Christ. Will you pray that with me for the sake of the children and the Kingdom?
7/18/2016 Last week was our first week of 5-Day Clubs. We had 55 children attending 3 clubs in the Richland area and 2 children put their faith in Christ. These neighborhood clubs bring in a diverse group of children from many different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs. We even had a Muslim girl coming to one of the clubs. Please pray that the truth of Jesus and His love will stay with her and result in salvation for her and her family.
7/6/2016 GOOD NEWS CLUB TOTALS: June was our last month for Good News Clubs. We had clubs in 13 schools this year with 488 kids enrolled. Of those, 256 put their faith in Christ this year in the clubs. Imagine the impact if we had a club in every school. Most every elementary school in the Tri-Cities area has an evangelical church just blocks from it. Please pray that more churches will take advantage of the ministry of CEF to get into the schools so our local children can be saved and growing in Christ.
7/1/2016 We just returned from our annual Christian Youth in Action training camp where teens from all over the state were trained to do 5-Day Clubs. While at camp the teens did 5-Day clubs in the Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR areas. The teens reached 621 children with the Gospel, led 41 to Christ and counseled 32 saved children with assurance. It is always an honor to supervise a team at this amazing event. I am always impressed by the many teens who love the Lord and desire to serve Him.
4/27/2016 We have great opportunities to evangelize children with the numerous face painting events coming up. Please pray that many teens and adults will attend the training in May and become equipped to give a clear presentation of the Gospel on a child's level while face (or arm) painting with the 5 colors of the Wordless Book. Also pray for God to call many to serve at the two face painting events already scheduled for May and that many children will hear and respond to the saving message of the Gospel.
