Dear Friends of CEF,
of the Miami Valley
CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP
“And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”  ( Phil 4:19)

We continue to thank God for His faithfulness in providing the funding needed for our summer ministries. We thank you also for, “. . . storing up for yourselves treasures in heaven . . . For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also,” (Matt. 6:19-21) Financially speaking, God has used you to close the gap between 2013 vs. 2014 year-to-date giving. Praise God!! We were approximately $6,600 behind last year, but are now only $1,200 behind. However, compared to our 2014 year-to-date Giving Budget, we were approximately $2,400 per month short, but we are now only $2,200 per month short. Again, Praise God!! We ask that you continue to pray with us, that we will stay focused on P-R-A-Y-E-R, and not on finances. “Brethren, pray for us” (I Thess. 5:25).

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
As we lead this ministry here in the Miami Valley, this quote from God’s Holy Word is one of my prayers. I heard a preacher say that integrity in the life of the believer is at the core of who you are. It defines your identity and the content of your character. Let us all be seeking integrity as we serve our
Lord.

As the summer winds down and fall approaches, we here in CEF start thinking about School clubs and teacher training. Also the Children’s Ministry Conference is upon us as well. We are praying that it will be well attended with all teachers of children, in Sunday school, children’s church, Good News Club teachers, as well as helpers.
Trying and Trusting

A preacher called David Martyn Lloyd- Jones sometimes asked the people, “Are you a Christian?” If they said, “I’m trying!” he knew they didn’t really understand. Because being a Christian isn’t about trying, it’s about trusting! Trusting not in what you must do, but in what God has done. And He has done everything! John 1:12, but as many as have received him, to them he gave the power to become sons of God…” taken from Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing by Sally Lloyd Jones.


​Thank you so much for all of your prayers for Child Evangelism Fellowship!
