CEF currently has active, ongoing work in 180 countries. Our goal is to have ongoing ministry in all 208 nations of the world by our 80th anniversary in 2017.
Last year, active ongoing ministry was started in 11 new countries. This year, 4 new countries have been added so far. It is our goal to establish ministry in 10 additional countries by May 2013, including Anguilla, Samoa and Cape Verde. Several of this year's target countries cannot be names for security purposes. We are also working to strengthen the ministry in recently opened countries like Grenada and Guinea Conakry.
We need $178,000 this year to cover the cost of training, travel, literature, leadership and other needs for these countries. Join us in bringing the Gospel to these precious children—many who have never heard the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ even once.
