Exciting news! I will spend part of my summer as a local Missionary, serving with Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) an interdenominational faith missionary organization that reaches boys and girls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
As a Missionary, I will be teaching 5-Day Clubs (Bible clubs) throughout our local area. I will also be serving and teaching at Camp Good News! The special training I will receive is called CYIA.
I want to serve as a Missionary because I want to be able to tell other children about the Good News. I don't want any child growing up without having at least had a seed planted in their hearts and a chance to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. Everyone needs to know about God's love for us and what He did for us. Another reason for why I want to be a Summer Missionary is because I love being with kids and just letting them know that even though there are hard times, there is always someone that loves them. Some kids that we will end up teaching might not come from very good backrounds and life might be tough for them and letting them know that they are not alone gives me joy to know that we were able to shed some light.
CEF is dependent on God for financial needs. Therefore, I am asking God to raise up a support team who will pray and give financially. Funds raised will be used for training, travel, and other expenses when holding clubs. The total funds I need to raise is $500.00. Funds given over this amount will help our team to continue to expand the ministry to local children throughout the year. Will you pray and ask God how He would have you be a part of my ministry this summer (and beyond)?
Missionaries attend one week of training called CYIA (Christian Youth In Action). Training includes teaching Bible lessons, sharing the Gospel, counseling for salvation, and much more. Training equips them to reach children in partnership with CEF and Local Churches year-round. Many teaching opportunities are available such as Camp Good News, Good News Clubs, Five Day Clubs, and Party Clubs.
Statistics tell us that 80% of the children in the United States do not attend church. How will they hear unless we go tell them? If you have any questions about CEF and our ministries please contact our local CEF coordinator, Bridget Back at 812-756-1694.
Thank you for prayerfully considering supporting our ministry this summer.
