Dear Faithful Prayer Partner,

God is at work around the state of West Virginia. We had the privilege to attend the CEF of WV Prayer and Fellowship Summit. The summit was hosted by CEF Greater Huntington Chapter. The local Director, Nathan Sayre and the local CEF Committee members did an outstanding job of planning, organizing and executing this event. Praise to the Lord for using these folks to honor Him.

During the summit, the six local CEF Chapters gave an update of what God is doing in their chapter. WOW! Even during the pandemic, God used the many volunteers to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to the children. Many creative ideas and methods were employed. In addition, each chapter shared prayer requests. We are asking God to show Himself powerful and mighty in these days. “Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.” Matthew 18:14.

Please note the praises and prayer requests below and share praise to God for what He has done and ask Him for the needs listed below. Thank you again for your prayers.
