December 2013 Update

  • A Changed Life

    Jen got a Call from a student at SRU.  She got to hear a story of a female SRU student that she had talked to a few times.  The young lady had heard the gospel while talking to Jen on campus.  She realized the evil in her homosexual relationship.  She repented and placed her trust in Jesus.  She started going to a good church during the summer.  She decided to go to a different college this year, so she would not be tempted by the LGBTQ culture at SRU.  We are so grateful to God.   Please pray for her.

    The First week in August I spent in NYC.  We had 2 days of training for the Campus Leaders and then several days of outreach.  We did many interesting outreaches on the subways.  We had several sinners anonymous meetings.   One gentlemen comes into the subway car thanking everyone for coming to the meeting.  He asks for people to give their testimony and then when no one does he gives his own.  Then he pleads with people again to stand up and give their testimony.  After a third plea one of us stands up and gives our testimony.  Here is a picture of me giving my testimony of coming to Christ.  Then two others stand up and give their testimony.  As you can see by the young lady here everyone is listening and surprised.    In the one location we did this others had almost been arrested for preaching the gospel a few days earlier and we had the same guards tell the complainers to sit and be quiet so that they could see all that would happen.    A little creativity can go a long way for finding a way to share the gospel.  Many people heard the gospel.

    The parks in NYC are a wonderful place to witness.  People go to the parks to interact with others.  We had many wonderful conversations.   These two had many questions and ended up talking to several Christians about Jesus.  Pray that God is changing their hearts.

    Hundreds of people heard the gospel via open air evangelism in the parks.  God drew several large crowds to hear the gospel throughout the week.  Some crowds gather because of apologetics like here.

    We gathered crowds using IQ tests and trivia as well.  Either way everyone heard a good gospel message.  What a wonderful week we had in NYC.

December 2013 Update

This Fall semester at CCNY has been God-glorifying!  CCN students were able to share the gospel with many students on campus during weekly outreaches, and they were able to give away free gospel tracts and books. Additionally, many professors and faculty members at the City College of New York were encouraged by CCN students as well, and invited them for lunch to celebrate a great semester. The students cannot wait until the Spring semester starts, to continue serving God!

The last 30 days we have handed out over 10,200 tracts. We gave out many of them at the Macy's Christmas Parade in Pittsburgh.  Those watching the parade loved the tracts.  They were Christmas postcards with the gospel on them.

The tracts were easy to give out.  We said Merry Christmas to everyone.

They normally said Merry Christmas back to us.

The students at Slippery Rock I believe loved the Christmas Postcards the most.  Almost all of the students I have the tracts to take them and said Merry Christmas back.

At Pitt we were able to talk to several students while handing out tracts.  This young lady is a Christian and she asked for a few extra postcards so that she could send them to her family that is not Christians.  Pray for all the non Christians that got these tracts.

A Slippery Rock students found the tracts easy to handout as well.  We were able to talk to this young man outside even after he finished his cigarette.  It was about 8 degrees outside.  When we first started talking to him he said he was an agnostic. Before the end of the conversation he said that he could believe in a God that died on the cross to pay his fine for his sin if he repented and trusted Jesus. He just did not want to call himself a Christian and go to Church.  I would say it was a step forward.

We went down to the Strip District and Planned Parenthood to witness as well this month.  We spent a lot of the time praying for people after we witnessed to them.  We watched the one couple that we witnessed to at Planned Parenthood pass by the clinic.  They stopped and argued in front of the clinic but they did not go in.  They paused and the boyfriend walked back to the clinic and then walked back to the women.  The women left and did not go in.  I do not know if they really were going to go in but they heard the gospel and the women seemed to understand the gospel before she walked away from us.

In December most Campus Leaders plan out the next semester.   CCN has two new campus leaders. 

Jen gave a talk on evangelism on the second Saturday of the month.  The teaching went very well.

We also had our annual outreach at First Night.  We spent several hours handing out tracts and witnessing.  Several groups of people heard the gospel 1 to 1.  The New Years Eve event is always a festive atmosphere in which to share the gospel.  We were excited to share the love of Christ at this event.  Below is a picture of the crowds during the parade on New Years Eve.

All of this would not be possible without support.  Thank You for your prayers and your support.
