On Monday July 15, CEF® Indian Lakes Chapter teenagers worked in the Ottumwa Pizza Ranch. Teenagers bussed tables and chatted with guest about CEF and our mission. Many of the people were interested in hearing the stories of how God is working in the lives of children. After the event, we asked the Pizza Ranch staff it was always very busy on Monday night, they said no. God surely blessed our night. All funds raised that evening went to help pay for the summer ministries.
The following Monday, we did the same thing at the Pella Pizza Ranch. It was great to meet new people and introduce the ministry to them. Many of the teenagers church members, family and friends came out to support us. We again asked the workers if this was a normal Monday night, and they said no. The line was almost to the door a good majority of the night!
Through both events, we were able to raise over $700 for the ministry! We give all praise to God.
