The last 30 days we have handed out over 10,200 tracts. I was given 12,500 tracts and have been trying to give out as many of them as possible. I was so grateful for the gift. We gave out many of them at the Macy's Christmas Parade. 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.
At Slippery Rock one of my 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.
I have spent many hours in December working on the website to change the name of the Ministry. CCN has two new campus leaders. I spent a good amount of time creating a Webpage for the new campus leaders. This month has been spent planning for next semester. I have most of the outreaches in Pittsburgh planned for next semester and on the calendar. You can see them on the calendar here.
I gave a talk on evangelism on the second Saturday of the month. The teaching went very well.
We went to the first night event in Pittsburgh and were able to hand out over 1500 tracts. We shared the gospel with several people 1 to 1. Four young men heard the gospel and really understood what they had been told. They talked for about 30 minutes about the gospel. Please pray for all of these events and our future events.
All of this would not be possible without support. Thank You for your prayers and your support.
