Message from the Area Director
Praise God from whom all Blessings flow!!
Each time we go out on the mission field, CBM aims to “MAKE A DIFFERENCE”!
Please continue to pray that God will use us this summer for His glory!
Character Building Club News – Our fall ministry was a very fruitful time! We conducted 15 after-school clubs, and 2 partnership clubs. We served a total of 244 children, with a total of 15 new professions of faith made. We also had 3 other children meetings with 88 children attending, have 12 students enrolled in our Mailbox club, held 4 Outreach Parties where 113 children attended and 1 new profession of faith.
Grand Total served: 457, with 16 new professions of faith made and 692 Bible Verses memorized!
Many parents expressed their gratitude for our presence in the schools, as well as the difference it has made in their children’s lives. Some of the testimonies include statements like, “my child’s behavior has improved”; and, “My child has a new interest in reading her Bible”. Two parents even have a desire to volunteer next fall. We closed out the year with a wonderful cookout with our families and it was a pleasure getting to know other family members.
CBM welcomes newest Board Member – Mrs. Doris Ofori !! Her daughter, Grace, has been a camper for several years and now she is a part of our Jr. Missionary program. Also, Grace will serve for the first time as a Counselor at camp this summer.
Thanks to Dr. Kevin English, Sr. (Pastor) and Open Bible Baptist Church for hosting our Annual “Kick Off to Summer Ministries” Banquet. We are very grateful for all of the inspiring testimonies shared from our gospel partners – Rachel Mraz, Youth for Christ; Miranda Byrd, Jr. Missionary; and Eddie Green, 413 Youth Center. Not to mention the message by Minister Robert Morgan, CBM Missionary, taken from Mark 1:1 – Not all good news is the Gospel. Thanks to all who were in attendance and for every donation given to reach the children!
Both our stomachs and souls were satisfied!
WOW, I will be taking my first trip out of the country (India). I am so delighted, and I need YOUR prayers for me and my 2 friends with whom I will be going (Maime & Sam). We will be leaving September 17th and shall return October 4th.
Our summer schedule is fully packed with exciting ways to reach the children. We have begun the intensive training of the Interns, after which we hit the streets.
Loving you with the love of Christ,
