“You changed our school!” Jesus changes lives, and that was evident to the principal of Arcon Park Primary School in Zambia. After only nine weeks of Bible teaching by CEF staff, most of the children in class had trusted in Christ as Savior. There was no longer a problem in the school of stealing.
It is heartbreaking to see yet another example of the severe racial divide that is a part of American culture. The undeniably senseless death of an unarmed 18 year-old Black at the hand of a White man, who is also a police officer, puts the spotlight once again on the ongoing culture war that plagues our great country. But in the midst of it all, there is a clear call for all of us who name the Name of Jesus Christ to be “cross cultural” in our response and in our witness to the world around us.
How do you know when you are hungry? Your stomach tells you it is time to eat, right? It is an empty feeling that can only be satisfied with food. Sometimes the hunger becomes more intense than at other times. I cannot even begin to imagine the pain of those who day after day are hungry and looking for food.
The TRAINING of individuals multiplies our ministry and enables us to reach many more children with the Gospel than we otherwise could. For the past eight years we have trained over 250,000 TEACHERS annually. Training is vital if we are to see more children reached for His glory.
EQUIPPING our workers with quality literature is ESSENTIAL to effective outreach. Our overseas regional directors confirm that one of the reasons we have been able to expand ministry each of the past ten years is because of the literature being provided FREE OF CHARGE to trained teachers. We are also distributing literature in the USA at NO COST to hundreds of thousands of children.
