"Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. "Mark 10:14

This verse is one of CEF main verses, since it says that God wants the little children to come and be saved. We have to become like little children to accept his gift of Salvation!

​I wish I had known Christ at a young age. I didn’t accept Christ as my personal Savior ‘til I was 32 years old. But the first time I heard that I could have my sins forgiven and have a personal relationship with Jesus, I jumped at that chance. And I started studying the Bible and getting to know who Jesus really was. It was a marvelous journey that I still am on. Praise the Lord!

​Because of your gifts and prayers, volunteers and workers all over the world have shared the Gospel with 15,612,330 children. This is a 43% growth in the ministry since 2010. In September, I hope to share how many children in the Miami Valley have accepted Christ, or have heard the Gospel in the ministries we have been involved in.

The Blitz is ongoing through December. This is a once a month party club we have with the inner city children from many areas in Dayton. We meet in a community center or a church and have a small meal for the children and the helpers and then songs, Bible lesson, memory verse, review game. It usually is from 12:00- 3:00. Will you pray with us that these children see a difference in those that are teaching and they hear and receive Jesus as Saviour? This is our prayer for them, since many of them do not attend church and do not have good role models in their neighborhoods.

​First and foremost, we want to thank God for His faithfulness in providing the funding needed for our summer workers involved in Christian Youth in Action (CYIA), and Good News Across America – Portland 2014 (GNAA). “And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”( Phil 4:19)

​In addition, we are in the midst of the Fairs & Festivals, as well as the Summer “Blitz” outreaches. Financially speaking, year-to-date giving is approximately $6,600 below last year and approximately, $2,400 per month short of our 2014 year-to-date Giving Budget. God is aware of all of this!! 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).

​May God richly bless you as you ”store up for yourselves treasures in heaven… For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also,” (Matt. 6:19-21).
