The fall session of CMI is about to start. There will be 16 core students (attending 11-12 weeks) and over 50 coming for various modules.


…the Lord for the students He is bringing to CMI for this fall session!

…the Lord that many students are coming from several Caribbean countries.

…the Lord that there are two students coming from Canada.

…the Lord that one student is coming from South Korea.


…for us as we make final preparations for CMI.

…for us as we finish updating our teaching notes.

…for Lisa as she finalizes the lesson curriculum kits and secures locations for six evangelistic party clubs the students will be teaching on September 19.

…for Tim as he helps Dave, our co-worker, finish getting the classrooms, dorm rooms and apartments ready for the students.

…that the students will have unity and bond as a family while attending CMI.

…that we will be able to teach with clarity and be godly examples to the students.


Looking back on the summer


…the Lord that we had a great vacation in Virginia in celebration of our 40th wedding anniversary!

…the Lord that the recording of Lisa demonstrating a Good News Club Bible lesson went well.


...that this Bible lesson demonstration will be beneficial for many Good News Club teachers as they prepare to teach the children.

Continue praying to the Lord of the harvest to send more workers

And He said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest” Luke 10:2 [ESV].  

Will you join us in praying earnestly to the Lord of the Harvest?   


…that the Lord will provide workers for the USA states that are in need of a CEF state director.

…that the Lord will provide trained workers for the various countries who presently have only a few CEF workers.

…that the Lord will open the door for Good News Clubs to be started in North Korea so children will hear the Gospel and many people (of all ages) will be saved.

…for our CEF workers facing persecution in several African countries.


Thank you for being part of our prayer and financial support team! Together we are laboring to reach the children! God bless you!
