Prayer & Praise (Sept 18-24)
- Well, we had a great summer of ministry with Christian Youth In Action! Praise God for these results: CYIA students taught 886 children all across the Denver metro area. 79 children were counseled for salvation, and 18 were counseled for Christian growth. In addition, the children in clubs raised over $700 for a CEF missionary in East/Central Africa.
It was an exciting summer, and I saw each of the students grow in different ways, especially the six students who went on the Salt Lake City mission trip I wrote to you about last time. Please pray for all of these students as they are back in school now and striving to live for Jesus in that environment!
- We are planning a CEF banquet for Friday, November 4. Would you pray for us to be able to get all of the table sponsors that we need for this event? We are hoping for this banquet to be a great success in casting the vision about reaching children for Christ and getting more people involved through prayer, finances, volunteering, etc.
- Now that the summer ministry is over, I have shifted my focus to planning for next year as well as just doing overall program development. Please pray for me to stay focused, be effective in developing relationships with our ministry partners, and have great ideas for how we can continue building this ministry! God is faithful, and I am looking forward to the next year.
Thanks for praying!
