HOLD THE ROPE for the week of September 17, 2018


·        All the after-school Good News Clubs® which are going to begin shortly and especially for the three schools where the club will go throughout the entire school year (Saratoga in Morris, Je-Neir in Kankakee County, and Union in Joliet)

·        His perfect supply

·        His direction and purpose – as His children, we may come before His throne and have direct access to Him!  WOW!

·        His Word – it teaches us more and more about Him, His love, mercy, grace, forgiveness, our future and so very much more


·        Our chapter’s GNC Kick-off meeting next Monday evening, September 24 here in Shorewood – pray that there will be good attendance, and great excitement and joy for the work before us

·        The children – ask the Lord to bring children to our 11 clubs who need to hear about the Lord Jesus

·        The teachers and volunteers as each one prepares for these clubs – may we continually be dependent upon His power working in and through us

·        Bella down in Missouri at the Children’s Ministries Institute® -- ask the Lord to give her the stamina needed to successfully complete these months of study; pray too that the Lord will prepare her heart to serve Him here in Three Rivers Chapter; pray for all her needs here in this region (housing, finances, a home church, etc.); ask the Lord to be glorified in her life and work

·        The effectiveness of the chapter newsletter mailed out last week

·        The preparations for the chapter’s November 3 fall banquet and silent auction – pray He will be lifted up and glorified

·        The children of North Korea – pray they may be able to hear the truth of the Lord Jesus and choose Him as Savior

·        The chapter’s September finances and for the Future Staff  Fund (for Bella’s needs) – in order to meet obligations we will need $8,500 by September 30 plus additional gifts for Bella’s future work with us (if you wish you may safely give online at www.cef3rivers.org) – He is able

·        Val, Steve, and Mike as they prepare to help The Compass Church in Bolingbrook do some training on Sunday, October 7 – ask the Lord to build a partnership between that church and us here at CEF

·        The worldwide work of CEF – serving every region of the world reaching boys and girls with the gospel

·        The chance this fall to begin a new club in Kankakee County – perhaps at St. Anne – we are hoping to be able to go there for six Thursdays

Again, you have faithfully read and prayed to the end of this week’s “Rope” – you are precious and important to us.  Thanks so much.  May He be exalted in your life and ours.  Mike
