Prayer & Praise (July 26 - Aug 1)
- Today we kick off our 4th week of 5-Day Clubs here in metro Denver! We have three teams teaching at various locations in Arvada, Aurora, Denver, and Lakewood.
So far this summer we have taught 786 children in 48 clubs. We have seen 52 children place their faith in Jesus for the first time! Children in the clubs have also brought over $210 in missionary offering for the Petkofs (CEF missionaries in Greece). Please pray for continued fruitful ministry this week!
- This week, CEF continues an aggressive ministry campaign in Little Rock, AR, to help pioneer ministry to children in that area. Over 100 CEF missionaries from around the nation came to help with the effort! They are working in partnership with dozens of local churches in order to jump-start gospel ministry.
Continue to pray for Emanuel, our team leader we sent from Denver to take part in the campaign, as well as everyone else involved! Pray especially for the event to be successful in jump-starting on-going ministries to children.
- Our budget for CYIA this year is $7,650 (to cover general operating expenses). To date we have received $3,730 of these funds (49% of budget). We still need $3,920 (or 51%). Thankfully we are actually coming in under budget in a number of key areas, but please pray for financial support to continue to come in over the next few weeks.
- On Friday, August 7, we are having an end-of-summer celebration for CYIA. Praise God in advance for this opportunity for friends and family, prayer partners, financial supporters, 5-Day Club coordinators, staff, and committee members to all come together and be encouraged by what God has done! (I will be sending out an e-mail invite later on today ... we would love for you to join us!)
Thanks so much for praying!
