Stories from CEF
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.
Peter Tigchelaar, Canadian missionary to Nicaragua, was playing in a park with his son when a young man approached him. “Do you remember me?” the man asked.
