Sponsor-A-National Means More Children Will Hear

Last year more than 19.5 million children around the world heard a clear Gospel presentation through ministries of Child Evangelism Fellowship®. The Sponsor-A-National™ program is a vital part of reaching children for Christ. When one considers the great population of children worldwide, it is clear that more laborers are needed.

As men and women receive training, many answer God’s call to serve as full-time missionaries with CEF® for the sake of the children in their countries. However, raising support can be difficult in countries where they live. There may be hostility to the Gospel, economic despair or simply unfamiliarity with missions. Often the families of our national missionaries turn them away and call them “beggars”.

The SPAN™ program provides the financial assistance these national missionaries need to follow God’s calling and still be able to provide for their family.

Syless Samuel Nkhoma, a national missionary in Malawi, said, “I want to thank every hand that gives to SPAN. I was so excited to work full time with CEF, but I had a wife and children and no money to support them. One day my national director told me I was on the list to receive SPAN support. Once I started receiving the ­financial support, things began to change. Now I can reach out to children with the food of the Word knowing there is food on the table.”
