March 2014 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.

March 2014 Update

Ryan, was given 6000 gospel tracts by a wonderful donor.  He got a wonderful team together to hand out tracts at the St Patrick Day Parade in Cincinnati.  

Ryan also participated in the Biggest Question Project.  He had a team give out thousands of DVD's at a major university in Cincinnati.  

Ryan loves witnessing to the students on campus.  Ryan uses an interview style to witness to the students.

Amynah the Campus Leader at CCNY said lots of new and exciting things happened at CCNY this month.  For fellowship this month, students learned from The Way of the Master  basic training DVD's and were encouraged and equipped on how to effectively share the Biblical Gospel message. One student commented that she really liked the Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort's method of evangelism, and that she'd never heard the gospel shared in such an easy way. New students also unashamedly joined in for many outreaches and even helped to pass out hundreds of Living Waters' Genius DVD's. The student in the picture below is a freshman student who is bravely handing a Genius DVD to her peers!

This month the NYC Campus Leaders had a chance to labor with their local churches, from feeding the poor, to going door to door witnessing. As those who are zealous for evangelism, it’s our desire to see our own local church catch the same fire!  We encourage the students at CCN fellowships to go to church and participate in their local churches.

Tim our Campus Leader in Virginia witnessed to students at CHOWAN this month.  He gave out tracts and witnessed to the students.

Jenifer Pepling witnesses at Slippery Rock alone each week so she does not have pictures from witnessing up there.  However, Jen loves talking to the students at Slippery Rock.  Jen has talked to many of the students more than 1 time.  Last week Jen talked to a young lady that she had talked to before.  The student told Jen that she watches what she says since she talked to Jen last time.   The Slippery Rock Student has been working on being a better person.  Jen told her she was very proud of her for working on repentance, but she needed to trust Jesus paid the fine for all the wrong things she had done.  Jen told the student that trusting Jesus was necessary to get into heaven.  The student told Jen that she hoped that next time she talked to Jen that Jen would be even more proud of her because she was going to trust Jesus paid her fine.  Jen invited her to Bible study again.

Being on the campus week after week witnessing to the students is a huge blessling.  We love being on the same campus week after week and the impact we can make because we witness at the same place every week.  

Pittsburgh Campus Leader Jen was given and handed out 9000 gospel tracts.  We handed them out at the St Patrick Day parade.  We handed them out in under 2 hours.  We got the gospel into thousands of peoples hands.  Handing out tracts at the parades is one of the easiest outreaches.  If you are ever thinking about joining us and can walk a mile or so then this is the outreach for you.  You just have to say did you get one of these 1000 times and all the tracts are given out.  

We are able to go on the parade and just walk up the side and hand out the tracts without issues.  

Jen went to 2 different abortion clinics this month.  Jen spent time at the one in East Liberty.  We wrote on the sidewalk with chalk.  We love doing this, because it is a witness even after you leave. 

However sometimes right after you write with chalk on the ground the deathscorts come out with a bucket of water and a broom and undo all that you did.  Jen had more chalk so she wrote with chalk again after they undid it.  Jen did not write it in all the same locations but many of them. 

Jen said: "The surprising thing about going to the abortion clinics is how many people I get to share the gospel with.  It is the gospel that saves and so that is the most important message I share with people.  I talked with a young man named Jamel the day that this chalk picture was taken.  I walked him through the good person test and he said that he had broken all of them.  I explained that he would end up in hell and that concerned him.  I showed him that if we were in a court of law and was guilty he would still have to pay the fine even if he confessed and promised not to do it again.  He understood why Jesus died on the cross when I went through the gospel with him.  I asked him if had a Bible at home and he did not.  I asked him if he wanted one and he did.  He walked with me to the car and got a Bible.  He walked by later in the day and thanked me and said hello."

The picture above was taken of Jen in front of Planned Parenthood after the St Patrick day Parade in Pittsburgh.  Jen tells us this "It was in the afternoon so no one that I saw went into the clinic while I was there but there are bars on either side of the clinic and I leaned up against the tree there and handed out million dollar bills as people went by.  I was able to witness to several people.  One young man that I talked to for a long time let me know that if he was able to repent of his homosexuality that he would have a drink with me in heaven.   He heard the gospel and was not offended.  Pray he gets saved. "

 

At Pitt we spent every Wednesday morning witnessing to students and whoever will talk to us.  We have been surprised about how many people have talked to us even though it has been cold.  We have been going to Pitt for so many years I am always surprised that there are people down there that we have not talked to.  Aunt Laura and I are probably considered part of the culture at Pitt at this point.  The seniors that graduated Pitt last year did not know life without us coming down and handing out tracts and talking to people.  Please pray for all the people that we have talked to through the years.

Thank You so much for your support.  We could not do any of this without your support.
