This summer CEF of Illinois is sending a team to Trinidad to assist CEF of Trinidad with summer ministry.  The team consists of 14 people, adults and teens. Two of this team are from Three Rivers Chapter. Karissa VanBuskirk and Demoriya Phillips. Both of these young ladies have served as summer missionaries in our chapter for two summers and have been very helpful in other areas of the chapter's ministry such as the Annual Easter Egg Extravaganza and after school Good News Clubs. Karissa and Demoriya have also both completed Teaching Children Effectively Level 1.  Karissa, Demoriya, and the other members of the team will be leaving July 13th and will return July 31st. Both of Will County ladies are very excited to be able to go and share of God's love to the children of Trinidad. While there, the CEF of Illinois team will be teaching 5-Day Clubs, day camps, and VBSs. 

Karissa and Demoriya are now in the process of raising the funds to go on this missions trip ($2000 each). Please pray for them that God will bring in the funds they need and that God will work in them and through them during this trip.
