For many people the Child Evangelism Fellowship® Easter Conference in Portrush, Ireland has been a place of Bible teaching, focus on missions, worship and fellowship.
April 10-13 marked the fourth GUIDE RETREAT on the campus of Child Evangelism Fellowship. This free event occurs twice each year—once in the spring and once in the fall. The next GUIDE RETREAT is scheduled for October 2-5, 2014.
Recently Reese Kauffman, Dave Howe and Chad Yost had the privilege of visiting CEF workers in three countries in Africa. They visited Good News Clubs and met many local staff, volunteers and committee members. One told this story:
Many of you who know about CEF know some general facts about the ministry such as, how many countries have ongoing CEF ministry or how many children were reached with the Gospel last year. But have you heard these facts about our expatriate missionaries?
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 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.
