Our missions emphasis for this month is Child Evangelism Fellowship. CEF is 79 years old. They have over 2,900 missionaries around the world. Marlene Stoll is our local director here in Pierce County. They had a booth at the Victorian Country Christmas where they shared the Christmas story. Please pray that those who heard the gospel will come to know Jesus.
Many CEF friends and family have been praying for the opposition that was mounted against CEF in the US by an atheist group who want to launch after-school Satan Clubs wherever they have Good News Clubs. You may have seen articles in the News Tribune as one such club is planning to begin meetings at Point Defiance Elementary in Tacoma very soon. There is also one planned for Portland, OR.
Please pray that no parent would allow their child to attend this club and that the atheist attempts would be in vain.
During this year, in Pierce County CEF has ministered to over 1,700 children with 38 accepting the Lord as Savior. They had a booth at both the Spring and Fall WA State Fairs. Marlene and her teen-age helpers conducted our summer 5 Day Club. Pray for Marlene and the many other workers in countries all over the world. Please take time to read their most recent newsletter on the missions bulletin board. We will be taking a Missionary of the Month offering during our Sunday School time on December 18th. This money will go to Marlene Stoll for the work of CEF.
