Child Evangelism Fellowship – Wayne Genter and team – Sterling VA
  • Our Good News Club at Rolling Ridge Elementary meets on Tuesdays after school.
  • Loudoun County Public School system continues to impose significant limitations on how we can promote the club, even to let the parents know the Good News Club is active and their child is welcome to attend.   As a result, our registrations only number four.   We would love to bring the gospel to many more that need to hear it.
  • Even though our club is small, the clubbers engage very well and are excited to attend.
  • Prayer request: Pray for our Good News Club team to be faithful, prepared, and clear as we present God’s truths each week. Pray for the hearts of our clubbers to be open and receive God’s message that He has for each.
  • Pray for our team members- Rich Kim, Larry Lindsay, Megan Thayer, Lynn Sipes, Ron Baker, Sandra Yesawich, and Wayne Genter.   Larry has temporarily stepped down as his son pasted away this week. Pray for Larry in this time.

  • The Lord Jesus longs to meet with us, much, much more than we long for Him.
  • The Lord blessed all of our Christmas activities,
  • Three people in our church publicly confirmed their faith and received baptism on December 22

Prayer

  • Pray that we and others in our mission and churches will hunger and thirst for the living God.

Gideons
 
Praise: Miranda had been in jail a while back. It was not how she saw her life going, and she experienced deep shame and disappointment.
