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.
