Continuing to pray for CEIS in 2018 – Term 2

Exodus 3:14   God said to Moses,
“I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.”

Thank you for praying for Christian Education in Schools. Your prayers are vital. We praise God that we are able to provide this service in ACT government primary schools. We give thanks for the opportunity children have to seek, question and explore our amazing God!
