CCN members enjoyed the Biblical Relationships retreat this past weekend. There were many wonderful teachings at the retreat. All the students and Campus Leaders felt refreshed and challenged going back home. We learned about conflict resolution, boundaries in friendships, dating with a purpose and dating your spouse when you are married. Because we are CCN we went out witnessing each night after the retreat. You can see many pictures of the retreat here.
This is a picture of a crowd that was gathered in Times Square. Chiz (Our discipleship leader) was proclaiming the Gospel (in the black, on the right)
We also took one morning to go to the Margaret Sanger NYC Planned Parenthood murder mill. We were so happy that we were able to convince one young lady to turn away from the clinic that morning. We talked to her for about 30 minutes and then walked her down to the subway. She was giving lots of information about where she could get other kinds of help.
At the clinic, we open air evangelized, handed out tracts, and spoke to the women to see if we could talk them out of murdering their babies. Another tool we used was chalk: we wrote on the sidewalks leading up to the clinic. We wrote messages like "A FETUS IS A BABY", "CHOOSE LOVE and CHOOSE LIFE", "DO NOT MURDER", "WHEN IS IT OK TO MURDER A BABY IN A MOTHERS WOMB? NEVER". We did this so that when we are not at the clinic we still have a presence.
Campus leaders continue to build disciples on their campuses using great teachings and other methods. Here is a picture of Andre teaching at MCCC. He was teaching on how to get to the gospel when talking with unbelievers. This is always an important lesson for all of us to learn. We need to be friendly, use humor, ask questions and always carry gospel tracts with us.
We like to meet in public places so that other students will see us and want to join in the Bible Study. Here is a picture of Nick teaching on the Bible in the cafeteria.
On the campuses we spend a good deal of time witnessing to students. We even witness to students that say that the are Christians. Often times the students that claim to be Christians have never really heard the good news of Jesus and are so grateful to finally understand. Here is one of our Assistant Campus Leaders Aishah witnessing at LCC.
The students enjoy the fellowship each month with other Christian students. We are all about teaching the Bible and witnessing but it is good to eat with each other and enjoy fellowship. Here is a picture of students enjoying fellowship at CCNY.
Thank You so much for supporting CCN. To God be the glory!
