Big Picture

God is our hope in the fog of war. He is the true source of love, truth, peace, and all that is good. We pray that God will redeem the current situation in Ukraine by bringing many children and their families to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Many in the CEF family are seeking updates on the situation with our workers in Ukraine, how they can pray, and how they can help. We have included that information here and thank you for joining us in prayer for our workers and the children of Ukraine.
