This message is from Reese Kaufman (CEF)
The school year has officially kicked off and I want to personally thank you for participating in the Back to School campaign and celebrating what God is doing in the lives of children around the world!

Here’s an update on the financial support raised through the Back to School campaign and where we plan to go next.

Because of the generous support from friends like you, thousands of children will learn about the love and hope of Jesus this year.

But it doesn’t stop there. You still have the opportunity to give your best gift and spread the Gospel through more Good News Clubs. We need your help getting the word out to Christians everywhere that we CAN teach God’s Word in after-school programs.

Our next step is to recruit and train new volunteers to staff hundreds of Good News Clubs in the coming year! If you or anyone you know would like to volunteer, please reach out for more information.

P.S. Did you love reading stories about what God is doing in the lives of children? If so, sign up for The Big Picture campaign so you can get an impact story sent straight to your inbox every week!

Please continue to pray for…
