Praise the Lord for volunteers who are ready for Good News Club in September! God has done miraculous things for us this year and almost all teams are fully staffed and sponsored by a supporting church! God is so good! Please pray for unity and wisdom as all the clubs begin in September. Pray that the volunteers will find harmony in working with each other and will find their flow in running the club!

Praise –For a great month in promoting CEF ministry to churches and individuals. God has given me peace and a clear mind when I spoke to them so I wasn’t nervous. Praise the Lord for His presence during these meetings.
Pray – For wisdom in helping all the new Good News Club volunteers to get trained and equipped for the club ministry. Our fall schedule is always really tight and many trainings will take place this fall.
Pray – For a good rest and recharge as I go on vacation the end of September. My husband and I will celebrate our 10th anniversary on this vacation.

Pray—our faithful club teacher Mrs. Rossi has been diagnosed with cancer. She and her husband won’t be able to return to club this year. Please pray for God’s healing and peace in the Rossi family as they hold on to the Lord during this difficult time.
Gloria Carlson: Instructor of Teachers
Praise for the many years I have been able to teach children in Good News Clubs. Many of these children are now adults teaching the message of salvation to more children.
Pray for my five weekly Good News Clubs that start the week of September 12th. Pray for me that I will be open to God’s leading as I prepare my lessons. And, pray that God will prepare the hearts of the children that they will hear and understand.
Pray for TNT (Teach ‘N Transform) September 10th that many will attend as we share God’s vision for reaching the children.
Hannah Yang: Instructor of Teachers
Praise for the opportunity to start several new monthly clubs in new areas where there has been a lot of opposition.
Pray that many more children could be reached through these clubs, and that they could eventually transform into regular, weekly clubs with enough volunteers to staff them.
Karen Chan and Team at an ASGNC in San Francisco
Praise—a church is willing to adopt the Good News Club and has already recruited 5 volunteers to help.
Pray—for good communication and favor with the new after school program coordinator so the Good News Club can have the full club hour without interference from the other after school program.
Kim Noyes: Office Manager
Praise – After a year of fighting, the EDD has finally admitted in writing that they made a mistake and we did pay our taxes after all. They have removed all penalties & liens, and closed the account. Thank you to our state treasurer, Bill, who put many, many hours into this with letters & phone calls.
Praise for a generous donation that covered the expense of all the materials we hand out to the children attending 5-Day Clubs.
Pray that we would get more volunteers in response to the emphasis on evangelism at my church this month. God did miraculously provide enough people to cover two seriously understaffed ASGNCs.

Praise—the school district approved classroom use. Praise also that we are allowed to use a good room that was originally assigned to another group. Please Pray for more parent volunteers in this club.
Nadjy Desrochers: Field Missionary
Praise – Thankful to God for all the work He enabled us to do recently on my missionary trip to Panama. I’ve heard recent reports that all the teens and adult teachers who were trained have experienced a revival in their desire to serve Christ and greatly benefited from the CEF trainings they attended.
Pray – For God to draw children and teens back to His Word as I prepare to begin my weekly neighborhood GNC and JYC teenage meetings. Pray for protection, wisdom in planning and strength.

Praise – We are thankful for the opportunity CEF had to share the Gospel with 100+ children and adults at the San Jose Municipal Stadium in conjunction with the San Jose Giants!
