- This past Friday night, March 5, we hosted a “Summer Preview” meeting for students and their parents to come and learn about CEF's summer missions opportunities in 2010. We had nearly an equal number of new students and returning students attend, which was exciting! Many of the returning students also said they were talking with their friends about CYIA. I think this is shaping up to be a great summer!
Our application deadline for summer missions is April 1. Please pray for students and their parents this month as they prayerfully consider this opportunity. CYIA is an incredible time for students to put their faith into action and make an impact in the lives of boys and girls! We are shooting for a team of 20-25 students this year, and I think things are on track for us to have that team.
- Please pray for me as I begin designing our team leader weekend retreat that will take place in May and continue working with Bill, our state director, on designing the two-week CYIA training camp that will take place in June. This year we are exploring creating an opportunity for 12 and 13-year-olds to join us in Denver for the second week of training as part of a “jr. missionary” program. Praise God for the young students who have already shown interest in this! Please pray for the details of it to come together well.
Thanks so much for praying!
