New Year’s Greetings!
We hope your Christmas was filled with God’s love, the joy of our salvation, and much celebration with family and friends! We pray your New Year will be filled with God’s abundant blessings!
December was a very busy month here at CEF Dallas. To wrap up the year, together we shared the Good News with more than 1,300 children through Good News Clubs, Christmas Party Clubs and a huge Christmas event at the Dallas Convention Center. Our ministry partner, Operation Care International, hosted their 19th annual Christmas Gift for the homeless and lower income families. Several hundred children received a Christmas gift from CEF Dallas.
It was an International Christmas as well! Two Spanish and six Asian Christmas Party Clubs were conducted, as we seek to grow ministry in both communities. Through a local volunteer, we also supported a Christmas Party Club in Mexico. The LORD is opening new doors in South Dallas, as there is great opportunity to reach many more children in our multi-ethnic region. Though it was a challenging year, especially for me personally, together we finished 2023 with more than 4,500 children receiving the Good News — a 100% increase from 2021. Let’s praise God for all that was accomplished together!
As we turn our attention to this New Year, the question we are asking is, “how can we do more in 2024 to reach more children for Jesus?” That’s a question we’re encouraging you to ask as well. Whether it is more prayer, more giving, or more going out to share the Good News, let the Holy Spirit provide your answer. There is always more that we can do for Christ, especially when we do it together!
Together, let’s allow our love for God and the children of our community to bind us together to do MORE in ‘24 to reach the children of North Texas! All for the glory of God!
In Christ for the Children,
Brian Considine, Director – CEF Dallas
