Why I am Serving this Summer

I am working with CEF this year because I had a great time sharing the love of God over the last two summers. I am returning so I can continue sharing that love with others. I look forward to learning more about God as I work this summer. I also look forward to experiencing Jesus work in my life and the lives of those around me.


I would like to ask for prayer that I wouldn’t use my own words, but rather that I let God speak through me.

Turned Around Theme

The summer 5-Day Club theme is TURNED AROUND. In Isaiah 45:22 it says, "Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other." It will be my responsibility and privilege to tell children in Minnesota how they can “turn” to God and accept the free gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.  This message will be shared through the Bible lessons of Zacchaeus, Noah, Mephibosheth, Saul, and the Ethiopian. These lessons will challenge kids to turn from their old sin nature and become new in Christ. Saved children will be challenged to demonstrate a change in their behavior.  The missionary story is Ringu, where a boy in India discovers the power of the one true God. In this story, based on fact, children can experience life in a faraway land and develop a heart for reaching the lost.

Your Partnership Requested

Starting today, would you consider praying for me as I prepare to do what the Lord has called me to do this summer?  Please also continue to pray for me throughout the summer.  There are many distractions that can take my focus off the ministry. 

I praise the Lord for the opportunity He has given me to witness and minister to children that need to hear of the love of God and trust Him as their Savior.  The only way I can be a part of this ministry is through the prayer and financial support of my family and friends.  

Additionally, would you consider supporting me financially? I will need to raise $1,800 to cover CYIA training throughout the summer. There’s no tangible value to the growth I will experience or for the children whose lives will be forever changed! Any gifts exceeding the amount above will go toward other summer ministry expenses. All support must be raised and received.

Thank you for joining me in reaching children for Christ.  We will make a great team as we each do our part!  Thank you again for your prayers and support.
