  • November Praise Report

    CCN exists to train up its students to go out and share the gospel.  This month one of the Pitt students shared the gospel with another Pitt student.   The new college student at Pitt joined us at Bible Study.  He was headed home for Thanksgiving later that day and could not wait to ask his Grandmother for a Bible.  Jen asked him if he wanted one and he did and so Jen gave him a Bible.  He was so excited about joining us for Bible Study that we are going to have Bible Study the week of finals.  Pray that he reads his Bible the entire way home to Philadelphia.

    Jen finished teaching through John Frames book "Apologetics to the Glory of God."  We learned all about Presuppositional Apologetics.   The students now know how to show others that Christianity true because it resembles reality.  We learned about many different ways to show that the God of the Bible and specifically Chrisitan God is the only logical God.  The students discovered that you cannot have logic or morality outside of the Christian Worldview.  It was powerful to show the students that all other world views do not have legs to stand on.

    The NYC Campuses ministered at an abortion clinic in their area.  Here is a picture of Diane pleading with those that are going inside.

     

    The MCCC Campus went out proclaiming repentance and faith in Jesus Christ in Pottstown this month as they always do.  Here is Andre preaching the good news to people waiting at the local bus stop.

    Tim at Tidewater Community College had many great conversations on his campus about the Gospel.  

     

    Some of Tim's students came out and shared the gospel several times this month.  They helped hand out Evolution vs God DVD's as well and hand out tracts on other days.  It is so exciting to see the students going out and sharing their faith.

    We  handed out tracts at the Christmas Parade in downtown Pittsburgh.  We handed out Christmas Postcards at this parade.  The Christmas postcards were very easy to handout.  We handed out the same tract last year.  People were very excited to recieve the tract.

    Each week we are able to speak to many students about the gospel on the campuses.    This month Jen had several second conversations with people.  A young man named Ben who is a Buddhist came up to talk with Jen a second time.  Jen had talked to him about a month ago and then this past week he walked right up to Jen so they could talk some more.  It was a great second conversation.  They talked about the fact that if it was natural for people to die then why was it so upsetting that they died.  Jen explained to him that we were wired to live forever and not meant to die.  We were made in God's image.  He really understood and said that resinated with him.  Pray for Ben.

     

    Bible Study is going great in Cincinnati.  We are so excited to have Ryan teaching there.  He does www.witnesstalkradio.org during his outreaches.  It is great to be able to hear many of the conversations that he has witnessing with students. 

     

    Thank you so much for your support!

     

  • July 2014 Praise Report

    CCN was asked to train up 100 youth to go out and share the gospel.  The students were encouraged and loved the teaching.  They learned why to use the law.  The students learned what the gospel is and how to share it.  They were taught some basic apologetic.  We were so grateful to serve in this way.  Below you can see Amynah and Aishah teaching the youth.

      

    Several Campus Leaders attended Jersey Fire this year.  Two of them served as team leaders during outreach.   Nick did a wonderful job as a team leader as well as with sharing the gospel via open air.

    Amynah did a wonderful job as well.  This young man heard and understood the gospel.

    We spent 3 days in NYC for Leadership Summit.   It was hard to pick which pictures to put into the newsletter, you can see more pictures here.  During 2 of the evenings and one of the mornings we went out for outreach.  Tim Jackson got to open air for the first time using IQ tests.  Tim did a wonderful job.  Here is a picture of him.

    Ryan got to proclaim the gospel in the subway to hundreds of people.  This was the first time Ryan shared this way in a subway station

    .

     We spent a few hours at Planned Parenthood.  We shared the gospel with many young ladies and the employees.  Here is a picture of Jen sharing the gospel.  We share the gospel first since it is the gospel that has the power to save.

    We also spent 4 days in NYC for Repent and Witness.  There were too many pictures and too many stories to share them all.  Repent and Witness Missionary trip pictures can be seen here.   

    It was so hard to pick which stories and which pictures to show you all.  Jake had a lesbian cry over her sins.  We had a gentleman who we have witnessed to for years thank us for answering his questions and being so kind to him.  We were told that he would no longer heckle us because of our kindness.  We witnessed to JW's and Mormons.  Jen talked to a gentleman named Jonathan that believed a little of everything was true.  We were able to talk to many people after open air sessions.  We gave away 8+ Bibles after open airing on the subway.  We ran out of Bibles to give out!  Jen was able to give pizza to a homeless couple and then gave them the gospel.  They told her afterward that she gave them joy and considered repenting and placing their faith in Jesus.

    Here is a picture of Jake sharing the gospel with the kids from a daycare in Battery Park.  He asked the people in charge and they said yes.  He gave a wonderful gospel presentation.  The kids really listened.  

    We had several firsts at Repent and Witness as well.  Todd did his first open air proclamation of the gospel.

    Several new people joined us in NYC this year and they all loved the event.  We invited many of the people that we witnessed to join us on Sunday morning for church in Union Square.  Several people did join us for church.  Jake witnessed to one young lady that brought her brothers to church.

    We were able to open air all weekend.  We had favor with the authorities.  We praise Jesus for that.

    We handed out hundreds of gospel tracts in Battery Park.  

    Jake asked permission to share the gospel with all the kids in a day care that was walking by.  It was a beautiful moment.  He spent about 15 minutes talking about God and the gospel with them.

    We had so many great one to one witnessing encounters.  Below Andrew from Striving for Eternity talks with people that we have been witnessing to for years and one that joined us for church.

    We shared the gospel in Central Park.  We had to pick a new location in Central Park due to a group of naked women were having their bodies painted in the park.  We did not want to tempt any of the men so we moved onto another location.  

    At the new location Jen almost had her foot run over by an angry Catholic.  Andrew talked to some devote Muslims and we proclaimed the gospel open air.  Here is a picture of Andre sharing the gospel.

    We preached in the subways.  Here is Nick sharing the gospel on the NYC subways.

    We stayed out late and shared the gospel at night.  Here is a picture of Ryan sharing the Gospel.

    Thank You so much for your support.  God Bless you.
