Last CCN Saturday was a blessing! We met at Seton Hall University for group prayer, the Word of God, and worship. The Lord blessed us with His presence and the saints were edified and encouraged before hitting the streets of Newark, New Jersey, where we fed the hungry, witnessed the gospel one-to-one, and open-air preached to captive audiences.
God gave us great grace and liberty with the people of Newark. Many were very open to the message, thankful for the food, and allowed us to pray for them.
Please pray that the Lord will open the hearts and minds of the people of this community.
Newark Crime Statistics: 2006
- 105 murders
- 87 rapes
- 1288 robberies
- 1359 aggravated assaults
- 5097 auto thefts
- 1982 burglaries
student members arrive at Newark with our cooler full of bagged lunches and distributed it to the needy. In each bag was a tract and each person was offered the gospel message.**
Having been trained how to biblically and effectively share the gospel with people, CCN
student members approached people on the street and boldly struck up conversations about the Lord. The people of Newark were very open and many were humbled, challenged with truth, and thankful for our willingness to share Christ with them. Please pray for salvation.*** *Above:
Standing at the intersection of Broad and Market Streets, we were able to preach the gospel with boldness and love to those standing at the bus stops. Even though there were many Muslims, no one seemed offended and many listened intently to the message. Others thanked us for sharing. Many "grew up in church", but are not saved. Please pray for those who are falsely converted to be truly born-again.****Above:
After a day of spreading the gospel on the wonderful soil of our free country, America, we broke our fast, and joined together for a time of fellowship at a local Trinidadian restaurant. Unfortunately, it was the size a large closet and so we had to move the feast over to Tiffany's apartment! We're all family! *
*"And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation." (2 Cor. 5:18-19)*"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15)**
We pray you can join us next CCN Saturday
