Dear Good News Club Friends & CEF of Collier Family,
Wow! What a difference a day, a week and a month make! Spring’s arrival has certainly been full of many shocking surprises and seemingly insurmountable odds with the global crisis of COVID-19. But, are you ready for this? God is Sovereign and He is still on His throne of goodness, grace and love. The Gospel is still going forth and spreading! Everything is SPRINGING UP!
The Good News we can share today is that CEF’s vision to share the Gospel with every child, in every school, every day, worldwide and right here in Collier County is coming true despite these sudden times that are changing everything we do! Our 19 clubs showed a total enrollment of just over 500 having grown by two dozen more children since the beginning of month. Your prayers and financial gifts unleash the Holy Spirit’s fruitfulness in our work and we are grateful for all of them!
Did you know despite the current quarantine and closing of schools that we are still at work? Club volunteers and staff are reaching out through social media, by email, phone, postcard fan mail and in some cases, with a personal stop to drop off Quiet Time Devotional materials and Bibles for Good News Club children and families. God is showing us creative new ways to bring His hope to hurting and lost souls!
We can celebrate with JESUS the 35 little souls who have already prayed to accept HIM as their personal Savior and Lord. Will you pray with our CEF Family now?
- Ask God for how you can help CEF of Collier move more Gospel sharing resources, Social Media tools and a diverse corps of volunteers to reach all of Collier’s school children.
- Pray for our continued collaboration and favor with Collier County Public Schools, administrators, principals and teachers as well as with the homeschooling community through CHEACC, church ministry partners who are reaching more and more of Collier’s families, and Gospel sharing para-church ministries like YoungLife and Fellowship of Christian Athletes to help us reach and teach the children…together.
SPRINGtime is blooming with blessings and even federal tax filing deadlines have been postponed now to Summer in July. Giving generously in every season blesses both you and Good News Clubs children. Every gift matters no matter its size.
Savannah went LIVE on Instagram this week to share about Christian Youth In action, a summer ministry for young people ages 12-21!
Christian Youth in Action equips teens with practical training so they can go out into our community and share the Gospel with kids. You can learn more about Christian Youth in Action by going to our website:
Check out CEF’s YouTube channel for kids: U-Nite! Below is a video which is the first in a series called “Good News TV”, an online Good News Club lesson!
