August was full of God honoring ministry. The Leadership Summit was successful, the Campus Leaders met the new Leadership of CCN. We talked about the Vision of CCN: to evangelize the lost and disciple the found. We are going to train up the next generation of soul winning leaders. Every one of the Campus Leaders was greatly encouraged by the direction. We made changes to the way CCN will be run. Campus Leaders now have more control over what happens on their own campuses, and they are being provided additional support for the cost of tracts and other materials they regularly need on the Campuses.
Repent and Witness, which is 4 days and 4 nights of witnessing went great. We handouted tracts and open air evangelize and witness 1 -2 -1. We went to places like Union Square, Washington Square, Times Square and Central Park. We preached in each location and we even preached on the subway system while going from 1 location to another. Here is a picture of our Repent and Witness missionaries.
I enjoyed sharing the gospel with large crowds in Washington Square.
We had church outside on Sunday and we had some of out hecklers from Saturday join us for the service. We has several people that open air preached this week as well. We often use trivia and IQ tests to gather a crowd to share the gospel.
We preached at the Statton Island Fairy and thousands of people get to hear the gospel.
If you want to see more pictures go here.
CCN had a booth at the PineRichland Community Days. It was cool that we were able to talk to people that we had talked to the year before. Everyone who stopped by went through the gospel and got a teddy bear, a tract and a Bible (if they wanted one). I got a letter from the township thanking us for participating in the event. It is a great day when you can share the gospel and get asked to come back and do it next year.
CCN taught an Evangelism Crash Course in Philidelphia. We meet the young lady that asked us to do it at an outreach. She was so encouraged by our outreach that she contacted us to do a Crash Course. The students learned so much and they went out and shared the gospel after the Crash Course.
Here is a testimony about the Crash Course from Amynah a Campus Leader:
"Last year, at an outreach in Philly, I handed a girl a gospel tract and proceeded to share the gospel with her, little did I know the girl was already saved. In fact, she was the leader of a youth group at her local church. A year later, the same girl went on the CCN website, which was located at the bottom of the tract I gave her and she requested to host a CCN Crash Course at her church for her youth group (which consists of mostly 13-15 year old). After five hours of evangelism training, we took the entire group out to a local area to share the gospel and it was amazing! The students instantly engaged into conversations with many different people and passed out many gospel tracts. A young boy even said he wanted to do it again next Saturday. It's amazing seeing the fruit that can come from one simple gospel tract a year later."
The following week CCN took a team down to the Planned Parenthood. This was the first time down there for some and the second time for others. Some of the team had does this for years. We ended up driving a young lady home from downtown who was having issues. We talked to many people before they went in. We pray that some of those people that were going into make an appointment decided not to have an abortion.
The Fall Semester is about to begin. Please Pray for all the Campus Leaders.
Thank You so much for your support. The CCN Team would not be able to do all of these things without your support.
