144 Witnesses Campaign
Sunday, September 22, 2013, Lone Star Prairie will initiate its first Fall Fund Raiser with a campaign called 144 Witnesses. This will be a wonderful time to invite people to become a part of God’s work to reach children with the Gospel message by supplying the financial resources needed.
144 Witnesses is a set of 144 envelopes each with a dollar amount that starts with $1 and consecutively moves up dollar by dollar on each envelope until it reaches $144. The person will place the dollar amount shown on the envelope and place it into the offering on a Sunday. As the envelopes are assembled to be received by Lone Star Prairie, it will help to enlist the prayers, the attention, the team work and the finances to strengthen and equip our chapter for ministry.
Most folks think in a ministry like Child Evangelism Fellowship that it is funded by the parent ministry by paying for our salaries, supplies and expenses. But it does not work that way. Not one dime comes from CEF because like each chapter, we are all “FAITH BASED”. That means that it only runs financially as God’s people join in commitment to see that the ministry is able to function in the mission work to reach children as well as their families. People must see the vision and then donate to finance that vision.
CEF of Lone Star Prairie is a missionary ministry….it can only go as far as God’s people supply the funds to support both the mission and the missionaries.
