Sponsor-A-National Means More Children Will Hear

Last year more than 15.6 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.

Richard Acquaye, CEF regional director for West and Central Africa, said, “SPAN has been a blessing in the sense that there are national missionaries working in strong Islamic places. They are reaching the children at the risk of their own lives. With SPAN support the missionaries are able to continue to do the work.”
