Opening with flags

Over 1400 CEF workers, from 81 of the 188 countries that CEF has an active work in, were present for this conference. What a blessing to hear how the Lord is working in the hearts of children throughout the world!

Betty had the privilege to meet Jan Johnson, Ponderosa Chapter Good News Club missionary for the past school year.  Jan is amazing woman!  She lives out of a suitcase 11 months out of the year as she travels throughout the Asia Pacific area training workers to reach children for Christ.  “It is all for the children” Jan humbly stated.
