HOLD THE ROPE for the week of November 18, 2019


Al is at home and doing well – he and his case worker are exploring the possibility of finding a local place where he may have his radiation and chemo.  Six weeks of treatment – pray for him during this time.  Our Lord is in control of him and his future.  Keep he and Tina in your prayers.

Praise the Lord with me for –


·        Another Elwood School boy who last week received the Lord Jesus as Savior; also praise to the Lord for the child saved at the Morris Grade School club!

·        His continued provision for His work and our lives – proof of His grace

·        His matchless, true, and eternal Word that we may read and obey – He is so trustworthy!

·    For Steve and Bella’s visit last Sunday to a Grundy County church to present the ministry of CEF

Please pray with me for –

    ·The children – we are asking the Lord to use the devotional books, “Everyday with God” to make a difference in the lives and choices of the children – helping them learn the value of developing a time each day with the Lord – because of this devotional book, a boy came to the Savior!

     · His continued perfect provision – we have a $2,000 insurance bill due on November 30 along with regular obligations – if you sense the Lord urging you to share in this, please go to www.cef3rivers.org and look for the “Donate Now” button on the home page.

       · The children of North Korea

       · The leadership of CEF – lift up our president, Reese Kauffman and the other men and women who work at IHQ – may they each sense the direction of the Lord and seek to be obedient and humble servants of the Lord God.

       ·The Christmas party clubs that are scheduled for our chapter area – St. Anne and Pembroke (both in Kankakee County)

       ·  A meeting this week of all the CEF of Illinois staff in Peoria – pray for safety in travel and an effective and productive meeting

      ·God’s will as we process the application and interview for a possible new member of our local committee – we desire God’s will for us and this person

     ·A young man and his family as they consider service with CEF next summer as one of our local chapter missionaries


Bless your heart for taking time to pray for the children, the worldwide ministry, and for us here in Three Rivers.  You are so very important to this, His work.  Mike
