HOLD THE ROPE for the week of March 23, 2020

COVID-19

During this trying time, the ministry of CEF continues!  Please go to our chapter website (www.cef3rivers) for several excellent resources available which may be used to reach, comfort, and encourage children.  

UPDATE ON AL BLACKBURN

Al’s recent tests showed he is doing well during this time of chemo treatment; his next session begins on April 1.  During this time, he, like the rest of us, are socially protecting ourselves.  Please keep he and Tina in prayer.

PRAISE AND THANK THE LORD FOR –

·        The many resources CEF is making available

·        The comfort believers have in the power and sovereignty of Jesus Christ

PLEASE PRAY WITH ME FOR –

·        A virtual Good News Club® that is running on CEF’s You Tube Channel called U-NITE.  We have emailed all the families of children enrolled in our chapter Good News Clubs inviting them to watch.  Pray that many will view this weekly club and respond to us.

·        Another email being sent this week informing church leaders, GNC families, and friends about the Truth Chasers Club -- pray that many kids will enroll in this free Bible correspondence by mail ministry

·        For the children

·        A FaceBook video we will make each week keeping our friends and partners up to date about the chapter’s ministry – “A Moment With Mike” may be found on the CEF of IL Three Rivers Chapter FaceBook page.

·        The chapter staff during these weeks asking that they may each be sensitive to needs, quick to meet those needs, creative, safe, and trusting in the truth of God’s Word

·        The chapter’s finances – in order to meet this month’s budgetary obligations, we will need $11,000 by March 30 – with all our heart we believe He is able.  If you would like to partner financially go to the chapter website (www.cef3rivers.org) and click on the “Donate Now” button found on the opening page

·        Our state leadership – Katrina; right now, her father in Ohio is ill; pray also for she and her family still not in their house following the fire – ask the Lord to encourage and protect her and her family

·        Our national and state leaders – ask the Lord to use this situation to bring them to Himself and give them wisdom and direction.

Thank you for continuing to stand with us in a prayer partnership.  We must faithfully run the race He has sovereignty set before us keeping our focus upon our mighty God, the Lord Jesus Christ. – Mike, Steve, and Valarie
