“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
I am so grateful for this truth! Especially as we walk into a new year, a new adventure, into another year unknown. We can walk by faith, knowing that our Lord is already there, and will guide us through whatever 2023 holds.
2022 has been a wonderful year for CEF® of Treasure Valley, and we are so grateful for your part in this ministry. As this ministry grows, we are seeing God move in new ways and opening new doors! One of those include the invitation from “Ro116”, a group of Christian business leaders and marketplace influencers from around the Treasure Valley, that network together to help fund gospel-driven nonprofits in our community. They have invited me to share the ministry of TV CEF® at their “Fast Pitch” event on February 6th, at Riverside Community Church in Meridian, at 6:00 p.m. What an honor to be a part of this. One of my goals, as the Local Director, has been to make this ministry known to more Christians, and to the area. I’ve been surprised at the number of people and churches that have not heard of the ministry of CEF®. All friends of our ministry are invited to come.
We are encouraged that we will be starting at least two new Good News Clubs in the valley this spring. Once in Caldwell, at Liberty Learning Center, sponsored by Caldwell Christian Church, and returning to Snake River Elementary in Nampa. We are still praying for doors to open in a Middleton and Caldwell public school. I appreciate your prayers for this.
We are actively looking for new voices to join our local committee. We specifically would like to add some Christian men to the group, as well as some younger people. Please pray about this opportunity, and let me know if you are interested.
We are grateful to hear reports from the Good News Club leaders that their clubs are growing, and children are being saved. What an important ministry this is during this chaotic time in the world! We know, by faith, we will continue to pray that we reach more children with the Gospel.
Once again, thank you so much for partnering with us in this vital ministry to reach children for Jesus!
