A letter from CEIFA Founder and President

In the last 30 years of ministry, God has honored this ministry in some incredible ways, but especially giving us the best partners around the world to work with.  That was true in Romania, Albania, Croatia, Malaysia, China, and more through those early days of ministry. Recently, we moved our office files to our new shared office with Heaven’s Family. What a walk down memory lane thanking God all the way for all He has done. This mission workspace is located at our home church facility at Lifebrook Church of God in Bethalto.  There is absolutely no way to explain how a small and seemingly insignificant ministry could impact so many souls, people groups and nations for Christ, except to say: “Little Is Much, When God Is In It”
For the last 16 months CEIFA and, my full-time mission employer, Heaven’s Family have been working together more and more with shared resources, workers and projects.  We call it “cross pollination” in ministry.  Instead of distracting or weakening either ministry the result has been increased fruitfulness in all the frontier areas where we are partnering together.  For example, during this last year CEIFA has joined with HF to help rescue 50+ trapped North Koreans in China to freedom, through our joint funding of an Underground Railroad partnership in South Korea.  Heaven’s Family, on the other hand, has helped to expand our discipleship outreach in Nepal, by helping to fund several projects including: Bibles, discipleship materials, and salaries for Church Planters.  There are many more stories to tell but I think you get the idea of how cooperation and partnership in mission works.

I want to take this opportunity to extend my deepest gratitude to the BOD of CEIFA Ministry and the leadership of HF for allowing me to work in the King’s way of unity.  The humble men and women who work with CEIFA around the world and those whom lead on the Board are absolutely God’s choicest servants.  I am the most blessed man on Earth to work with such an outstanding team.  Thank you, board members, advisors, faithful donors, supporting churches, prayer partners, volunteers … all who have given so much to extend, expand and build God’s Kingdom on Earth.

All for Him,

David Runyan
