HOLD THE ROPE for the week of September 16, 2019


·        His graciousness in protection and provision – He is so very good

·        Bella’s trip to Rockford – the Lord blessed her in so many ways and she was an encouragement to so many; also thanks for the safety she had

·        The children we continually see and for those who have chosen the Lord Jesus as Savior

·        The sovereignty of our great and mighty God – He is in total control of our life and work


·        The Lord to work out the details to begin a Good News Club® in Elwood – we have a team ready to go in – we are waiting upon a response from the district’s attorney who is “reviewing” our application;  we have also supplied the district with a legal briefing from Liberty Counsel who represents CEF throughout the nation

·        The upcoming GNC kick off meeting set for next Monday, September 23 – pray we will have a great crowd of workers and interested folks who will come

·        The chapter’s financial needs for September – in order to meet all obligations $9,500 is needed by September 30 – if you sense the Lord urging you to give and share, go to www.cef3rivers.org and click on the “Donate Now” on the home page

·        The fall luncheon preparations – we deeply desire this event will glorify the Lord Jesus

·        The chapter’s finance sub-committee as they meet Thursday morning to prepare the chapter’s 2020 budget – it needs to be recommended by our local committee and then adopted by the state board

·        The children – ask the Lord to prepare their hearts for the start of after-school Good News Clubs in October; pray too for the children of North Korea asking the Lord to enable them to hear about His love and forgiveness

·        The state staff as we meet together later this month in Peoria – ask the Lord to give us oneness and unity in the work He has called us to do

·        Bella’s studies at Moody Bible Institute online – she has still about three weeks left in her OT Survey class

·        Ruth Johnson – keep her in your prayers – she is enjoying her new home in Wisconsin

·        Mike and Steve as they travel on Tuesday to the Northwest Chapter office in Rockford to talk about and begin planning the educational schedule for the 2020 state missionary training school

·        The A. O. Marshall School team as they distribute flyers at the school next week – may it be effective to encourage children to attend the Good News Club

Thanks dear partner – your ministry of prayer is the backbone of this work ordained by God.  Again, thanks much - Mike
