The Harvest is a collection of testimonies from Child Evangelism Fellowship® workers around the world. These stories show how God is working in the lives of individuals, families, and communities. We hope that you be encouraged through God’s faithfulness in the ministry as we send his laborers into the harvest.
“And he said to them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.'” Luke 10:2

A few days before Christian Youth in Action® took place in Thailand, a CYIA™ leader was called away to aid in the search of a church member who was lost in the jungle.

Tim Pressley has already been instrumental in starting five new Good News Clubs and connecting with churches to launch more clubs.

“The elders of the city came to us and asked, ‘By what power do you do these things with the children? We have been casting spells on you, but they are not working.’ The CEF missionaries proclaimed, ‘We come in the name of Jesus Christ, and we are not ashamed of the Gospel.’ “
