Ministry Comes Full Circle
The purpose of Child Evangelism Fellowship is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living. It is so encouraging to hear testimonies of this being accomplished. Here is a testimony from Abby who was trained to teach at 5-Day Club® through Christian Youth in Action®:
I arrived at church for music team practice as some of the church vans were loading up to take kids home from Awana®. I remembered that some kids I taught during 5-Day Club said they might go to Awana so I decided to peak into one of the vans. When I looked in, I saw a van full of my awesome 5-Day Club kids. I wasn’t sure if they would remember me but as soon as I looked in they all yelled “Abby!” It was so nice to see them and know that they are growing and learning more about God by going to Awana. I even got to see two girls that I led to Christ. It was so amazing! I am so grateful to have been be able to plant the seed in these children’s lives. After they left I went back into the church almost in tears, thankful our awesome church transports these amazing kids so they can attend church and learn more about God.
This is just one example of how God has used CEF and the 5 Day Club ministry to reach unchurched children and establish them in a church to be discipled in the Word of God. Praise God for this testimony! Over 156,000 children heard the Gospel this summer through the 5-Day Club ministry. Of these children, over 16,000 children professed faith in Christ. Pray that these children will be able to attend a church and be further discipled so that they may grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ.
