Photo-trip organized at CE México

Photo-Trip, or Foto Paseo in spanish is an activity created by 4 endeavorers, with different abilities and skills. Nitza studies music and currently leads young choir “IOSHUA”. Abdiel is a graphic designer, painter and photographer, graduate of INBA (National Institute of Fine Arts). They have been working with the Mexican Christian Endeavor for the last years, leading trips, camps and workshops for the young people. Isai studied mathemathics at the National Autonomous University of México, and is currently teaching math in different grades. He has been working with the National Christian Endeavor since 2009. He is also a trip enthusiast and loves to work with young people. Last but not least, Mauro is also involved. He is a Bachelor of Communications, professional photographer, biker and wanderer, who started serving God through Christian Endeavor in 2014, taking photos and covering events all over the country.
He was taken by the hand by the Almighty and started this project almost one year ago. Photo-Trip involves going across the country, visiting places, meeting Christian people, taking pictures and having different small conferences and reflective topics according to young people ’s needs. After having from 2016 to present 4 different photo-trips, in México city, México, Chilpancingo city, Guerrero, Tulum, Mayan Riviera in Quintana Roo, and this year Nevado de Toluca Mexico State the organizers draw the conclusion: it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a professional or compact camera, you can join using your phone. It is actually the best way to reach people who don’t know anything about Christ, because it makes them them feel warm and like home. A lot of times people express their feelings by taking pictures. You can notice the difference between sad and happy ones from the first photos until the last shots! Praise to The Lord

CE Goes Zoom!

During the September Board meeting held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania it was agreed the Executive Committee (WCEU) would go Zoom! Zoom is software that allows people to talk via video chat, share on screen documents, and tape discussions for people to review or watch later. The CE tested Zoom in December and it worked well. Periodic Zoom meetings will be held to accomplish ministry tasks through the year. This technology is also allowing one costly meeting to eliminated helping CE – World to carry out its mission with less cost. Praise the Lord as we “Zoom” into 2017!

Prayer Manual 2017

Prayer meetings are a great way to start the year. Therefore the WCEU encourages all endeavorers to arrange prayer meetings in the week January 29 through February 4. This week includes February 2, the day the first CE society was founded. It is the Christian Endeavor birthday which is observed in some of the CE Unions to remember the beginnings of CE and praise God for the blessings HE channeled through CE into HIS church.

Staff of the German Youth Federation for Christian Endeavor have contributed to a simple manual (115 kB)for the prayer week. It gives you a short devotion for every day, prayer topics and some hints for the program of the prayer meeting. However you are of course free how you put up the program. The most important point is, that you make it a point - or better a priority to pray in the prayer week (and beyond). If nobody joins you or your CE society, - go it alone! Take some extra time in your personal devotions for the prayer points in the manual. Or use the manual as guideline for your personal devotions during that week. But it is better to find two or three others and pray together. If there is no time for a prayer meeting all days of the week, pray at least one time/day.
Focus in the prayer week on Christian Endeavor all over the world. The WCEU website and the WCEU's newsletter and the prayer mail provide plenty of information for thanksgiving, praise, petition and intercession.

The WCEU will be glad about short and meaningful reports about what you experienced in this prayer week. Your experience, your program may be an encouragement for other endeavorers. That is why the WCEU would like to report about the prayer week.

For some endeavorers, resp. CE unions it is already a tradition to collect an offering earmarked for the WCEU during the prayer week. Show your solidarity with the CE movement by donating to the WCEU through GoFundMe .
