Update Sept 2013

  • 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.

Update Sept 2013

It's September and CCN is in full swing on the campuses.  Topics taught included "Hell's Best Kept Secret", "Sinfulness of Mankind", "Attributes of God" and "Priorities".  We also showed a movie about evolution and discussed several key claims it presented.

CCN just loves to go to other campuses and preach the gospel.  Our Director of Discipleship took a trip to Chicago to preach the gospel and tell people at Moody Bible College and University of Illinois Chicago about CCN.  They were encouraged by seeing Christians share their faith.  Pray that they are encouraged to start a CCN in Chicago.  This is a photo of CCN preaching at UIC.

MCCC did a great job during outreaches this past month.  They were blessed with many opportunities to witness.  Campus Leader Andre loves to share the gospel and does a great job of teaching his students as well.  

  

In New York we led several outreaches.  Roberto gives the gospel during a Saturday outreach in Manhattan.

We even had a few firsts this month.  First a young man named Sam proclaimed the gospel while open air preaching at Pitt 2 weeks ago.  He had been praying to do this for a few months and was encouraged to do it for the first time this month.

Next a young man named Dylan decided to join us for outreach at Pitt this month.  He was encouraged to share his faith.  He handed out tracts and talked to people about Jesus.  He said that he was encouraged to share his faith. This is a picture of Dylan handing out tracts.

We have also been focusing on witnessing "1 to 1" at Pitt and SRU this month.  We witnessed to an average of 20 people per week at SRU, and had multiple quick Gospel conversations (and several lengthy ones) at the University of Pittsburgh. Laura witnessed to a man going to seminary to be a Catholic Priest who claimed the Bible is not the word of God and that traditions are just as important as the Word.  We asked him if after confessing his sins in the morning followed by a day of sinning and then dying in the evening, would he would go to heaven, he said he did not know.  I pray God saves him so he can have hope.  Please pray he reads all the tracts and information we gave him and that they will be used to open his eyes.  Here is a picture of the conversation.

  We were able to have several 30 minute conversations during our Saturday outreaches in the heart of Pittsburgh's Strip District. Diane witnessed to a retired doctor.  Pray that he repents and puts his faith in Jesus.  He wanted to go to a coffee shop and talk longer.  He talked to Diane for a very long time about God.

The Campus Leaders got together and created a new gospel tract this month.  We're really enjoying handing these out on all the Campuses.

Finally we like to say "Thank you!" to all of our donors.  This ministry would not be possible without you.   We are grateful to God and you for partnering with CCN.
