The children of Chicago are ready to hear the Gospel but they need someone to tell them. CEF of Chicago asked, “How can we recruit more staff members?”
Child Evangelism Fellowship® (CEF®) has been a huge part of my life since I was a little boy. My childhood was difficult as my father left us when I was only nine months old, leaving my mother with six sons to raise alone.
In 2016, early on the morning of October 1st, a fire broke out in the CEF camp center in Western Ukraine. It destroyed the upper floor and roof of the main building.
As I taught the Mary Jones missionary story, Mary’s passion for God’s Word amazed the children in my club. They all wanted to know how they could get a Bible for themselves!
When the invitation was given at the end of a 5-Day Club® lesson, two 11-year-old girls came to speak with the teen missionary and immediately began crying. The girls explained that a close friend had committed suicide.
Kids in Good News Club® are always eager to “show and tell.” One day a boy wanted to read a large portion of 1 Corinthians from his Bible. “Why don’t you choose one or two of those verses to share?” I suggested.
