Big Picture

From the desk of Jeremiah Cho

Sarah and I are looking forward to a wonderful weekend with you in Washington, DC at the beautiful Westin Georgetown. Georgetown is a wonderful neighborhood, and I know you will enjoy the special tour of the Museum of the Bible. In addition, we are excited to share with you all that God is doing in and through the ministry of CEF. God has given us the vision to grow the ministry to reach 100 million children annually, and we love to share the strategy of Train, Equip, and Support and how the Lord can use it to make an eternal difference for the next generation. I hope you will plan to join us, and I promise you will not be disappointed.
