Passion for the gospel - Compassion for the children

We recently came across this picture (left) from a Good News Club June’s mom hosted in their home over 40 years ago. It was a joy for June to find it, still up- stairs in her mom’s bedroom after all these years. We thank God for a family legacy of ministry to children. Times have certainly changed, though, haven’t they?

We couldn’t help but compare this picture to our After School Good News Club at Rainbow Elementary (pictured above). June’s mom would’ve never dreamed of a Good News Club actually meeting in an elementary school. Although had she heard of one, she probably would’ve volunteered to bring the snack.

And so, it’s the start of a new club year. For us and for each of our staff, it’s the time of year when you look forward to meeting many new children and to sharing Jesus with them. You thank God for the opportunity to reconnect with those who re- turn from last year, and you wonder about those who don’t. You pray for them all, and you trust that the Word they hear, learn, and sing will take root in their hearts, just like June’s mom did over 40 years ago.

Please pray for our After School Good News Club ministry, meeting in these schools this year—Beaver Creek (Thursday), Bradford Heights (Tuesday), Caln (Wednesday), East Fallow-field (Thursday), Fern Hill (Monday), French Creek (Thursday), Hillendale (Monday), Honey Brook (Thursday), Kings Highway (Tuesday), Rainbow (Thursday), Robeson (Thursday), and Twin Valley (Thursday). Thank God for those folks who have committed to being involved this year. Please continue to pray as teams are still being formed; every club could use more staff. Pray for good attendance, espe-cially in clubs where flyers are not distributed by the school district. Please pray also for new clubs to begin, particularly in Friendship and Reeceville Elementaries, our last two Coatesville schools. And, please con-tinue to pray for the children who will come. Truly, as we have seen God working in the lives of the children in these clubs, we can say with assurance, “...It is not the will of your Father which is in Heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.” (Matt. 18:14)

A Huge “Thank-You!” from Camp Good News

We want to express our extreme gratitude to the churches and individuals who gave lots and lots of prizes for our Camp Good News Store this summer. This year’s store was the best ever, and the children were so excited! It was a fantastic ending to their week at camp. We could not have done Camp Store so well without your generosity! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
